is an inclusive, contemporary, thought-provoking guide through the Passover seder. Its mission is articulated beautifully in its introduction: “The Haggadah helps us reframe our people’s ancient story, distilling it and expanding it until it becomes our own. During the course of the seder, we discover that our differences of perspective and experience become a source of strength and connection. When shared, our individual journeys become a part of our collective memory.” This accessible haggadah includes English translation, transliteration for most major elements, commentaries, discussion prompts, and supplemental readings. There is sheet music in the back for the traditional Passover songs.
