The Exodux of the Children of Israel from Egypt is a pivotal event in the Bible, celebrated today in books, plays and films. Each year, during the festival of Passover, Jewish families gather to remember the Exodus. The evening meal, or Seder, is filled with biblical readings, symbolic foods to be eaten and songs to be sung. The traditional patter of this meal is recorded in the Haggadah
The book is decorated with illustrations taken from the British Library's collection of Medieval Haggadot, and the commentary makes the book accessible to all readers.
