New perspectives on the Passover Haggadah
The story of Moses leading his enslaved people out of Egypt has been recounted in thousands of versions and translations of the Passover Haggadah through the centuries. The prayers offered and questions asked have been presented countless times, in countless ways. Now come literary stars Jonathan Safran Foer and Nathan Englander with their own take on this ancient, seminal text. Their “New American Haggadah” combines Englander’s fresh translation with commentary by Jewish writers offering differing perspectives on the exodus story.
