World-famous photographer Zion Ozeri, a Manhattan resident raised in Israel, is acclaimed by organizations around the world for capturing, in some instances, the last Jewish communities in many countries, from India to Iran. He has traveled the world collecting these priceless cultural portraits of a people united by tradition. To illuminate the Haggadah, the annual retelling of the Jewish people's escape from Egypt, Ozeri's photographs are paired with modern text by noted Jewish scholar and Haggadah expert, Shoshana Silberman, whose A Family Haggadah I and II (Karben) are widely used in Reform and Conservative Jewish family celebrations of Passover. This handsome, affordably priced Haggadah, in trade paperback, is the first of its kind to use photography to illustrate the annual book of prayers and traditions used in over 6,000,000 Jewish households across America each year. Each photo will be accompanied by a facing caption telling the land of origin of its subjects, from Argentina to Bukharin to the land of Israel. This is the only Haggadah to combine contemporary photographs from around the Jewish world with one of the most user friendly and all inclusive commentary by Shoshana Silberman. The photographs were carefully chosen to relate to the text on the page, creating and encouraging a conversation around the Seder table, by children and adults alike. The photographs from Israel, India, Morocco, USA, Argentina, Peru to name but a few, bring to light other Jewish communities and traditions. Shoshana Silberman's notes, interpretations and guidance makes leading the Seder and navigating the book easy. Her comments throughout, help explain the source of many of the different customs that are part of the Seder ceremony among diverse Jewish communities-Sephardim, Ashkenazim, etc.

A Family Haggadah
Author: Vida Boorstein,Florence Gold,Sandra Meyer
This book is a family Haggadah and for use at a Passover Seder. Haggadah translates to mean, "telling." The Haggadah tells the story of the Jewish people's exodus from Egypt. The Haggadah also instructs the reader on the rules and rituals of Passover and the Passover Seder. The title, "From Generation to Generation: A Family Haggadah", was created as a compliment to the biblical directive "and you shall explain to your children on that day, 'it is what God did for me when I went free from Egypt.'" (Ex. 12:8). The picture on the cover depicts several generations sitting together at a Passover Seder as their ancestors watch over them. It is distinctive in many ways. It is full of original colorful cartoon-like illustrations that are captivating to both children and adults. Furthermore, it is unique as it becomes interactive for children by asking them to go on a "hunt" to find hidden matzahs throughout the book. However, the most distinctive and exceptional element of this Haggadah is that it has two variations. It can be used for an adult-centered Seder with the Exodus story closely following the biblical account or, alternately, it can be used for a child-centered Seder. The reader is given a clear map as to how to proceed with either type Seder. This Haggadah follows the specific order of a traditional Seder. In addition to the traditional parts of a Haggadah, there are ideas for new ways of celebrating the Passover holiday, a Seder checklist, a description of preparing the house for Passover, and even a charoset recipe. Finally, this Haggadah makes the Seder both fun and educational. All Hebrew prayers and songs are in Hebrew, English and are transliterated. Favorite songs, including Da'yanu, Ayleeyahu Hanavee, Adeer Hu, Echad Mee Yoday'a and Chad Gadya are also included.
A uniquely conceived Passover Haggadah, structured as a play in which people act out consistent roles throughout the evening. It takes place at Seder tables through history, telling not only the story of the Jews' exodus from Egypt, but also the continuing tale of Jewish survival through the ages. This revised edition includes key updates - including new music by the author - and follows the traditional order more closely than the original version, to enable the widest possible audience to experience and enjoy it.
Features the original Haggadah text in both Hebrew and a new English translation, and includes information on the roots of Passover, its confrontation with modernity, and its relationship to other rabbinical teachings.
