Meet the Author

Alfred J. Kolatch, a graduate of the Teachers’ Institute of Yeshiva University and its College of Liberal Arts, was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, which subsequently awarded him the Doctor of Divinity degree, honoris causa . From 1941 to 1948 he served as rabbi of congregations in Columbia, South Carolina, and Kew Gardens, New York, and as a chaplain in the United States Army. In 1948 he founded Jonathan David Publishers, of which he has since been president and editor-in-chief.

Rabbi Kolatch has authored numerous books, the most popular of which are Great Jewish Quotations, How to Live a Jewish Life, What Jews Say About God, This Is the Torah, and the best-selling Jewish Book of Why and its sequel, The Second Jewish Book of Why. Several of his works deal with nomenclature, about which he is an acknowledged authority. The New Name Dictionary and The Complete Dictionary of English and Hebrew First Names are his most recent works on the subject. Other books by the author include Our Religion: The Torah, The Jewish Heritage Quiz Book, The Jewish Mourner's Book of Why, Who's Who in the Talmud, and The Family Seder.

In addition to his scholarly work, Rabbi Kolatch is interested in the work of the military chaplaincy and has served as president of the Association of Jewish Chaplains of the Armed Forces and as vice-president of the interdenominational Military Chaplains Association of the United States.

    A Haggadah for Our Times

    Are you coming home for Passover? These words, spoken by Jews throughout the ages, embody this greatest of all Jewish family holidays. Rabbi Kolatch's haggadah is a timeless easy-to-read edition that explains to children and reminds us grownups of the resilience of the Jews and our refusal to become bitter over our tragic history. Young people are tuaght the Jews' unequaled tradition of philanthropy. Having suffered as slaves and as persecuted people down through the ages, we are adamant in our pursuit to redress these abominations of tyranny with our works. Kolatch's masterful translation will inspire families for years to come. And, yes, families will come from every corner of the globe to celebrate this musical holiday together.

    excellent choice across ages

    This haggadah has been used with my family for over 10 years. The language, organization, and the easy approach to the prose make it informative, easy to follow and read aloud, and friendly for children and adults alike. I have also found that seder guests find it easy to adjust to, even for the non-Jews unfamiliar with the traditions, and that the organizations are similar enough to other haggadahs that the other guests quickly adapt and navigate well (often requesting the title as the prose flows more smoothly than many titles I have attended seders with).
