Which Haggadah Did You Use?

I'm amazed at the plethora of new Haggadahs that seem to be published every year. I'm curious what Haggadahs other people used.

As for me, here's what I used:

Night #1 - Haggadah Berurah, with halachic rulings of the Mishna Berura
Night #2 - Haggadah of the Jewish Idea, by R' Binyamin Zev Kahane (son of R' Meir), with appropriate (inappropriate to some) insights based on his father's works.

I've never been into the "tagging" thing, but I am interested to see what other people used, so I'll tag SephardiLady, Greg, and Jewboy.

I have kids, so I just use whatever Haggadah is available. I did see one by R. Jonathan Sacks that looked good.

I wasn't tagged but I used the Artscroll Youth Haggadah. It stays open very nicely, which is really the most crucial aspect of haggadah usage.

Great call on the importance of a Haggadah that stays open...the 2nd night the Haggadah was new and it was darn annoying trying to keep it open...

That Kahane one sounds interesting. I used a conventional Artscroll on the first night and Artscroll youth on the second. No fancy Hagaddahs for me. I did rely heavily on R' Dessler and R' Gedaliah Schorr for some divrei Torah.

Just got back from an extended Pesach trip. I'll post my answer up soon. :)

I happened upon your blog while in the process of repairing my blog's technical problems & re-entering blog links.
The Haggadah question was interesting, so I decided to respond (hope you don't mind.) My husband uses a combo: the Archeological Haggadah, which my father (a"h) gave him many years ago, with an Artscroll on the side for halachah and de'ot. I had the same Haggadah you did: Rav Binyamin Kahane's Haggadah of the Jewish Idea, which I had bought for myself, but on inspiration, gave it to my younger son in Israel. So I just used the Artscroll Family Haggadah. But I plan to get myself a new Haggadah with Torah insights, hopefully in time for next Pesach!
