Overview

The illuminated haggadah is the most popular artistic book in Jewish history. The word “haggadah” means recital—namely, reciting or telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt—following the biblical exhortation to tell the next generation the story of the redemption of the Israelites. This special full-color collector’s edition of The Moriah Haggadah, with art and calligraphy faithfully reproduced from the original hand-painted edition, is enhanced with a clear and precise English translation and commentary. All translations of biblical texts are from the 1917 and 1985 Jewish Publication Society translations of the TANAKH, which have been modified to make the texts gender sensitive.

Avner Moriah’s prodigious talent and curiosity, his deep personal identification with the themes of the festival and its special book, and his imaginative visualizations have given rise to an inspiring contemporary interpretation of the ancient Passover story. Moriah imbues the words with captivating modern images and new ways to penetrate its many hidden meanings.

Izzy Pludwinski’s elegant calligraphy gives the Hebrew characters unique beauty, and the commentary by Shlomo Fox provides new insights into the familiar text.

Hadassah Magazine
"While the art itself is an original and intriguing commentary, Shlomo Fox's contribution is scholarly and enlightening . . . You won't want to spill wine on this Haggada, but you will want to dip into its verbal and visual midrash to enrich the meaning of your Seder."—Hadassah Magazine
