Item Details

Baker & Taylor
The author of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close offers a new translation of the text of prayer and song used by Jewish familes each year to celebrate Passover and the story of Exodus, with the text augmented by commentary by a number of modern-day thinkers, including Michael Pollan, Lemony Snicket, Tony Kushner, Judith Shulevitz and more.

Read each year around the seder table, the Haggadah recounts through prayer, song, and ritual the extraordinary story of Exodus, when Moses led the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt to wander the desert for forty years before reaching the Promised Land.

Now, Jonathan Safran Foer has orchestrated a new way of experiencing and understanding one of our oldest, most timeless, and sacred stories, with a new translation of the traditional text by Nathan Englander and provocative commentary by major Jewish writers and thinkers Jeffrey Goldberg, Lemony Snicket, Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, and Nathaniel Deutsch. Ravishingly designed and illustrated by the acclaimed Israeli artist and calligrapher Oded Ezer, New American Haggadah is an utterly unique and absorbing prayer book, the first of its kind, that brings together some of the preeminent voices of our time.
