Yaakov Kirschen, another Brooklyn boy, born in the USA in 1938.  Kirschen received his degree in Art from Queens College in 1961. In 1968 Kirschen began drawing Zionist cartoons for Jewish Student activist newspapers, which later became syndicated by the Jewish Student Press Service.

Soon after making Aliya in 1971, Kirschen began drawing a daily editorial strip called Dry Bones, which became internationally syndicated and is known as Israel’s Political Comic Strip. Kirschen is a member of both America’s National Cartoonists Society and the Israeli Cartoonists Society.

This coming year is Dry Bones’ 40th Anniversary.  And to mark the occasion, Kirschen wants to fulfill his dream to create a Dry Bones Passover Haggadah, but to do it he’ll need our help. (click here for the Kickstarter Dry Bones Haggadah)

Why a Passover Haggadah ?  Passover, especially in these days of scattered families is a time to try to be together. The Passover Haggadah is unique. It is an illustrated ritual/cultural book that is found in most Jewish homes.

Why is this Haggadah different from all other Haggadahs?  Haggadahs, are distinguished by either their artwork or their commentary. In the Dry Bones Passover Haggadah, the artwork is the commentary.  Yaakov foresees the Haggadah as being between 90-100 pages, in Hebrew and English.

One of the rewards for co-funders is eBook | PDF of  the full color Dry Bones Passover Haggadah, so you can enjoy it on your iPad.
