The Haggadah is one of the most published books in Jewish history. The thousands of different editions – and the artwork and commentaries they contain – provide a window into history, culture, geography, and the evolution of Jewish practice. There is the Maxwell House Haggadah, mass-produced and distributed free with coffee purchases since 1932, and the limited edition paper-arts Haggadah created by American-Israeli artist David Moss. There are feminist, vegetarian, and social action Haggadot. There are Haggadot that tell the histories of different peoples and countries. There is even a Hogwarts Haggadah. Join us as we journey through Jewish history by exploring these diverse books.
