Download Description
The Passover Seder, the most popular and widely celebrated occasion on the annual Jewish calendar, and its Haggadah, which is a unique combination of liturgy, biblical exegesis, and rabbinic lore, have both delighted and confounded celebrants for nearly two thousand years. Over time, the traditional Haggadah has become increasingly obscure as the distance between the authors and readers, in both chronological and cultural terms, widens over time. This is because the Haggadah is essentially a rabbinic work, much of which is written in a style similar to that found in the classic works of Rabbinic Judaism such as the Talmud and Midrash, works that demand much more from those who would understand them than casual perusal. Although some good translations of the Haggadah have appeared over the years, even the best is...

Why on This Night
Rahel Musleah

Feb 2000
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 4-Musleah expands on the traditional Haggadah by including pre-seder tradition, child-oriented songs, plays, and crafts. She retains almost all of the core readings and blessings in some form and explains them in a meaningful way. She also makes the Haggadah more accessible by transliterating the Hebrew and describing many of the traditions in more depth than is usual. The linoleum-cut paintings complement the text well; at times, simple lines portray a figure, face, or action. Unfortunately, the writing is sometimes trite ("As we sweep the crumbs from the corners of our rooms, we also clear our hearts of the crummy thoughts we have of others"), simplistic, or didactic. The author clearly has an agenda; among other things, she compares the Biblical plagues to today's societal problems....


The Family Haggadah
Ellen Schecter

Feb 1999
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 6This Haggadah makes the Passover Seder accessible to youngsters, regardless of their upbringing or educational background. After a brief introduction on how to use the book, Schecter jumps right in with a script to follow, from the night before the celebration until the end of the Seder. The book maintains an egalitarian standard without becoming didactic. God is never referred to as male, and both men and women are shown to have played large roles in the Exodus story. The traditional Four Sons have become the Four Children, and the recent tradition of Miriams Cup is included. The book ends with a list of ways in which youngsters can participate in the holiday celebration. Black-and-white paintings depict biblical characters and some of the items used during the meal. Unfortunately, half...

Book Review
A Passover Haggadah, retelling the Exodus of the Children of Israel from Egypt, guides families every year through their Passover Seder. A Passover Haggadah faithfully renders the entire text of story, prayer, and song, with commentary by Elie Wiesel. Expertly interwoven, Wiesel's commentary (recalling memories of his own boyhood Seders and reflecting on Israel's place in the modern world) may be read aloud, along with the traditional text, in whole or in part. Drawings by Mark Powdal add joyous, fearsome, and poignant moments to the reader's experience throughout. At the beginning, just before the recitation of the Kiddush, one illustration depicts a contemporary Seder table whose length stretches into a path crossing a huge picture of the desert of ancient Egypt. The scene in the book is the beginning of the journey, the...

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks' Haggadah: Hebrew and English Text with New Essays and Commentary by Jonathan Sacks

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
"The seder service on Pesach is the oldest surviving ritual in the Western world, dating back some 3,300 years....Through the Haggadah more than a hundred generations of Jews have handed on their story to their children....Few texts have received more attention than the Haggadah. There are thousands of commentaries, and more are published each year. Anyone who contemplates adding to this number must ask not 'Why is this night different?' But 'Why is this edition different?' My answer is that I wrote this commentary because, amongst all the many I have read, I could not find one that explained in their full richness and scope the fundamental themes of the Pesach story: the Jewish concept of a free society, the role of memory in shaping Jewish identity, and the unique connection that exists in Judaism between...

Creating Lively Passover Seders: An Interactive Sourcebook of Tales, Texts & Activities
David Arnow
1580231845
February 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
"The Mishnah implies that no two Seders should be the same," claims Arnow, who has created a new Haggadah pamphlet each year to distribute among friends and family. In this innovative book, he urges readers to make the ritual their own, using Passover as an opportunity to better understand and internalize Judaism, freedom and faith. Each chapter begins with a short selection from the Haggadah, followed by Arnow's interpretations, ideas for discussion of relevant topics (e.g. miracles, slavery, exile) and suggestions for hands-on activities. Some adults may find these activities cheesy, but Passover has always been a holiday in which children are actively involved, and they will love "marching" from Egypt to the Red Sea, or stepping outdoors mid-meal to gaze at the full moon.
