I first heard about this two days ago, and I am disturbed on so many levels. I almost feel like spelling them out gives validity to the concept.

I think ttn's point is not just the Hagaddah itself. It is the inclusion of such irreligious trash on DDMS. And the lack of comments complaining about it HERE, not on Amazon.

But then again, I am not aware of where in the rules it says that DDMS is limited to tasteful Orthodox Jewish product links.

It is being marketed by Orthodox sefarim stores to the Orthodox market elsewhere as well

Ddms has a varied audience.. If you don't like it, don't buy it

Has anyone here seen it in person?  I understand the sensitivity and idea of thinking it borders inappropriate but on the other hand sometimes using the outside world to help people connect or understand isn't an awful idea. Meanwhile I've never seen the Hagaddah in person.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Likely thousands of kids who have no interest in the seder will actually be excited for it this year.

I think main site readers realize it may not fit their mehalach, but know it's not against halacha, and it's written by a frum Rabbi, so if they don't want it they obviously won't get it, but it has a place for others.

That said it's a good deal, and we always take readers feedback on deals we post, if we had gotten 100 scathing comments from many readers within minutes of posting, we'd of course take that into consideration for next time. But with no comments until this thread was started, I think most people realized what I said above, and chose to just move onto the next deal if they don't want it.

There are a few types of deals and disclaimers we add when it's bordferline and of course there are many deals we never post.

What we really need is a DDMS for women lol. I feel bad they really don't get a lot of deals that they'd want just because it's not tznius to post that stuff.

I saw it at The Seforim Sale this year. (Don't remember what the price was, though.)

"the most published book in Jewish history" You mean the Bible? ::)

Most importantly for this thread, why are people upset? I don't get it... it just seems like a cute book similar to the Batman and Judaism and Disney and Judaism books...?
