Description - Haggadah by Jonathan Safran Foer

Read each year around the Seder table, the Haggadah recounts through prayer and song the extraordinary story of Exodus, when Moses led the ancient Israelites out of slavery in Egypt to wander through the desert for forty years before reaching the Promised Land. In this new version of the traditional Haggadah text, Jonathan Safran Foer brings together some of the most preeminent voices of our time. Nathan Englander's new translation, beautifully designed and illustrated by the Israeli artist and typographer Ozed Ezer, is accompanied by thought-provoking essays by major Jewish writers and thinkers, including Howard Jacobsen, Daniel Handler and Rebecca Goldstein.
