In this March 21, 2013 photograph, Rabbi Marshal Klaven, director of rabbinic services for the Goldring-Woldenberg Institute for Jewish Life in Jackson, leads members of St. Philip's Episcopal Church.

Comedians and writers Dave Barry, Alan Zweibel, and Adam Mansbach join us to discuss their new book, For This We Left Egypt?: A Passover Haggadah for Jews and Those Who Love Them, a parody haggadah. The authors go through every step of the Seder, from getting rid of all the chametz in your home by setting it on fire with a kosher blowtorch, to a retelling of the Passover story starring Pharaoh Schmuck and a burning bush that sounds kind of like Morgan Freeman.

On March 9th at 7 p.m., Dave Barry, Alan Zweibel, and Adam Mansbach will take part in a panel discussion moderated by comedian Ophira Eisenberg at the New York Public Library Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 476 Fifth Avenue (at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue). For more information, click here
