Telling The Story: A Passover Haggadah

Is your old Haggadah getting a bit stale?

Ours is so archaic we need a ye olde dictionary.

My mouth gets so exhausted reading aloud all the "thoust" & shouldst" that I can barely chomp on my Haroset...(somehow I manage).

Barry Louis Polisar has re-told the Passover story in this brand new Haggadah that not only tells the story, but gives the background on the spiritual origins of the holiday traditions. Explaining each ritual in a simple and straight-forward way, this Haggadah includes both the English, Hebrew and phonetic pronunciations of the holiday prayers, so that everyone gathered around the table can participate in the Seder; a welcoming and inclusive adaptation that captures the spirit of the holiday without compromising tradition. This book features original full-color illustrations by Barry's daughter, Sierra.
