Whether at a model seder, a community seder, or a family seder,The New American Haggadah will inspire and delight participants of all ages. First developed as The New Haggadah, this Passover classic has been revised to reflect the experiences of our generation and the contributions it has made to the holiday's message of universal freedom.

The New American Haggadah presents the Passover service, filtered through the richness of the American Jewish experience. The moving text and traditional Passover songs are supplemented with illuminating commentaries. Highlights include:

  • An Ethiopian Jew's account of "Operation Moses," her own modern-day exodus from poverty and oppression
  • The memoir of a Union soldier celebrating Passover during the Civil War
  • Illustrations reflecting the diverse ways American Jews have enriched the Passover message of liberation
  • Songs by Debbie Friedman and Linda Hirschhorn
  • Riddles to entertain children and adults alike

Gender-sensitive language with elegant translation, transliteration of the original Hebrew text, music, and instructions for the leader combine to offer an accessible--and uniquely American--Passover seder.
