In a clever play on the classic Israeli folk song, “Zum Gali Gali,” Bob Wolfe has created The Zoom Golly Golly Haggadah 2021 for Passover. It’s playful and thoughtful, as usual.
Wolfe, a retired staff attorney for the Court of Appeals in Santa Ana, has been writing haggadot for years and sharing them with friends. Last year Wolfe told us that “Passover is focused around food, it’s at your home, and it’s one of the rare holidays where we explain the reason for doing things…maybe not always the right reason, but it’s explained.”
This year, it’s hard to believe we are celebrating again on Zoom. Wolfe’s haggadah is designed either for in-person or Zoom seders and focuses (naturally) on the pandemic and what we can take away from it.
“It’s a bit more optimistic about the post-COVID future – whenever that happens,” said Wolfe.
