Edited by Jonathan Safran Foer
with a new translation by Nathan Englander
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 the desert for 40 years before reaching the Promised Land.
Now, Jonathan Safran Foer has orchestrated a new way of experiencing and understanding one of our oldest, most timeless and sacred stories, with a new translation of the traditional text by Nathan Englander and provocative commentary by a collection of major Jewish writers and thinkers, including: Howard Jacobson, Lemony Snicket, Alain de Botton, Judith Shulevitz, Simon Schama, Tony Kushner, Michael Pollan and others. Designed and illustrated by the acclaimed Israeli artist and calligrapher Oded Ezer, New American Haggadah is utterly unique and absorbing.
