From the Publisher
With this Passover Haggadah, Elie Wiesel and his friend Mark Podwal
invite you to join them for the Passover Seder -- the most festive
event of the Jewish calendar. Read each year at the Seder table,
the Haggadah recounts the miraculous tale of the liberation of the
Children of Israel from slavery in Egypt, with a celebration of
prayer, ritual, and song. Wiesel and Podwal guide you through the
Haggadah and share their understanding and faith in a special
illustrated edition that will be treasured for years to come.
Accompanying the traditional Haggadah text (which appears here in
an accessible new translation) are Elie Wiesel''s poetic
interpretations, reminiscences, and instructive retellings of
ancient legends. The Nobel laureate interweaves past and present as
the symbolism of the Seder is explored. Wiesel''s commentaries may
be read aloud in their entirety or selected passages may be read
each year to illuminate the timeless message of this beloved book
This volume is enhanced by more than fifty original drawings by
Mark Podwal, the artist whom Cynthia Ozick has called a "genius of
metaphor through line." Podwal''s work not only complements the
traditional Haggadah text, as well as Wiesel''s poetic voice, but
also serves as commentary unto itself. The drawings, with their
fresh juxtapositions of insight and revelation, are an innovative
contribution to the long tradition of Haggadah illustration.
