   Alan Zweibel, writer and producer, will discuss his new book "For This We Left Egypt, A Passover Haggadah for Jews and Those Who Love Them," at Temple Israel of Lawrence, 140 Central Avenue, Lawrence, N.Y., on Sunday, March 25, 2018, at 10:30 a.m.

   This haggadah from the comedic minds of Alan Zweibel, Dave Barry and Adam Mansbach, is no ordinary Haggadah. If you've ever suffered through a seder, you're well aware of the fact that the entire evening can last as long as the exodus from Egypt itself. There are countless  stories, dozens of blessings and far too many handwashings while the meal turns cold. Now prepare to be entertained by this hilarious parody of the book that's responsible for this interminable tradition.

   Alan Zweibel, an original writer for 'Saturday Night Live' (1975-'80), is responsible for the creation of the Samurai for John Belushi and Roseanne Roseannadanna and Emily Litella for Gilda Radner. Zweibel has won multiple Emmy, Writers Guild of America and TV Critics awards for his work in television, which also includes 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' and 'Monk.'

   This event is Free and open to the public. Please register by March 18. To register, call the Temple Israel Office at (516) 239-1140, or email alan.freedman@tilny.org.
