by Arthur Szyk
with translation and commentary by Byron L. Sherwin with Irvin Ungar
 
Arthur Szyk (pronounced “Shick”) created his magnificent haggadah in Lodz on the eve of the Nazi occupation of his native Poland. No other haggadah is quite like this one; it is filled with sumptuous paintings of Jewish heroes and stunning calligraphy.

This edition, the first since 1940 to be reproduced from Szyk’s original art, boasts a newly commissioned English text by Rabbi Byron L. Sherwin. It also contains a commentary section by Rabbi Sherwin and Irvin Ungar, giving insight into both the rituals of the seder and Szyk’s rich illustrations.

Arthur Szyk (1884–1951) was known primarily as a political illustrator. Eleanor Roosevelt once referred to him as a “one-man army” and, indeed, he saw himself as a “soldier in art.”
