THE WHIMSICAL HAGGADAH (IX)
– Mega Interlude: The Telling (Exclamations of praise)
Praising God is central to the way we retell the story. The insertion of praises throughout the Maggid help structure the narrative. The praise tapestries all have one centered and contained shape on a neutral background: for once in the book there are words that we don’t have to dwell and reflect upon. We just say or sing them loudly and in unison.
(Rather than showing the Maggid (The Telling) tapestries in the order of the Haggadah, I have woven and organized them in five [sub]series according to the various types of text that they represent. Each (sub)series has a distinct expression that makes it different form all the other (sub)series of the Maggid.)
