Overview

Drawing on the vast archives of photographs, letters, and documents—many of them unpublished to this point—of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), this Haggadah highlights the JDC’s work in aiding Jewish individuals in distress around the world. The Haggadah is rich in pictures of the rescue and relief of Jews in times of crisis, from pre-state Israel, through post-Shoah Europe and Soviet Russia, to the deserts of Ethiopia. The foreword and commentary draw parallels between the Exodus story and these modern-day rescues, and historical anecdotes throughout the book feature firsthand accounts by both rescuers and the rescued. The evocative images and text in this unique Haggadah combine to create a moving account of the Exodus that reaches back through the ages and reminds readers of the timelessness of the Passover story.
