Four Questions in Klingon

My father says he heard about some book that has the Passover Seder's Four Questions in every language (including, yes, Klingon). Does anyone know what this book is called and where I can get a copy?

Re: Four Questions in Klingon

I think it may be in this interview with Shatner. If you are a Trekkie you may like to know that in the last UK Census there was a campaign to get Jedi recognised as a religion.  As there were over 10,000 returns which put Jedi down as a religion, it will be officially included on our next Census form!:smileyhappy:

Thanks!

 

If they've got Klingon, I wonder if they have Elvish, too.

Re: Four Questions in Klingon

And may the force be with them.

 

Is there anywhere a list of all the religions that will be on the census form?

 

And do they offer just one branch of Jedi, or do they offer both Darth Jedi and Luke Jedi options?  

 

I assume that Wiccan is on the list.  But is Satanism?  

 

I would love to see the list.  It seems appropriate to discuss in this group!

Re: Four Questions in Klingon

Your father might have been referring to this book.

For a religion to be included on a Census form there have to be at least 10,000 registering a particular religion under 'Other' and making demands for it to be included.  Jedi Knight may be included on the next Census form.

Re: Four Questions in Klingon

Thanks for that link.  From what you have said in the past about the decline of religion in England, I was surprised to find only 15% reporting No Religion.  I had expected, from your posts, to see it much higher. 

 

I guess I had been reading to much into the reports of the disinterest in religion in England.

Re: Four Questions in Klingon

I believe this is the book you are referring to:

 

 

Why Is This Night Different from All Other Nights? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sounds interesting.  Klingon?  Is that an actual spoken language?
