Yagen Haz is not a yogurt

יש מנהג בעולם שהאיש מורה על האשה משום שנא[מר] אשה רעה מר ממות


Interesting Hagaddos

Hunting rabbits
In German/Yiddish "Yaagen Haaz" means hunting rabbits.
A play on the word "Yaknehaz" יקנה"ז -יין קידוש נר הבדלה זמן

Bird's head Hagadda

The Birds' Head Haggadah (c. 1300) is the oldest surviving illuminated Ashkenazi Passover Haggadah. The manuscript, produced in the Upper Rhine region of Southern Germany in the early 14th century, contains the full Hebrew text of the Haggadah, a ritual text recounting the story of Passover – the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt – which is recited by participants at a Passover Seder. The text is executed in block calligraphy and accompanied by colorful illustrations of Jews performing the Seder practices and reenacting Jewish historical events. The Birds' Head Haggadah is so called because all Jewish men, women, and children depicted in the manuscript have human bodies with the faces and beaks of birds. Non-Jewish and non-human faces (such as those of angels, the sun, and the moon) are blank or blurred. Numerous theories have been advanced to explain the unusual iconography, usually tied to Jewish aniconism. The Haggadah is in the possession of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, where it is on permanent exhibition.

Perhaps the artist was aware of the Rambam (Avoda Zara 3: 10-11) and the
Shulchan Aruch( Y.D.141:4)

    The path of rebels is hard, because they do not
    want to bring themselves close to G_D.

    Tamar Sternthal of the JointMedia News Service said:

    “On the news side, [ New York Times]
    editors refused to correct both the false report
    that a Pew survey found that nearly half of
    Israeli Jews favor expelling all Palestinians,
    as well as the completely unfounded claim
    that most of Jaffa’s Arab residents were
    forcibly expelled from their homes in 1948.”

    Michael Moore is one of the greatest
    heroes of the political Far-Left.

    This is what he recently said about
    the accuracy of our news media:

    “The day before the election,
    The New York Times said
    he [Donald Trump] had a 15%
    chance of winning.

    Why would you believe anything
    The New York Times
    says after that?

    This is a [news]paper that,
    like much of the media,
    has been out of touch.”
