Round-the-world tour in languages includes CD and DVD

What the . . . ? Two nuts from New Jersey spent two decades collecting renditions of the Four Questions as a hobby. Then they met each other.

Who Needs this Book? No one unless you've ever wondered about the feel of a seder in Poland or Portugal, or what an African click language sounds like, or how Shakespeare would have asked the Four Questions, or whether they could be asked in Klingon . . . .

A World Tour. Learn about languages you've never heard of spoken by hundreds of millions of people, and languages spoken by hundreds or less. Native American, African, ancient, invented the sounds of all humankind, asking the same questions.

Seder Puzzles and Games. Ways to use these translations to make a multicultural seder like none you've ever experienced.

"Would one or two languages have permitted us to say Dayenu? Obviously not! The linguist in me takes great delight in this book, clearly the result of painstaking research. How is this night different? On all other nights, we may hunger for the word. On this night, we feast on it!" Theodore Bikel
