This Haggadah offers a rich feast of story and insight for anyone's Seder Table. It can be used year after year and remain fresh. I look forward to using it with my family" Rabbi Harold Kushner (Conservative) Author, When Bad Things Happen to Good People
This is not just "another" Haggadah. It is itself a rich, joyful, and immensely informative celebration that will help transform the Pesach Seder. It is a book that becomes a trusted and encouraging companion. No matter his or her starting point, everyone will emerge with an expanded sense of personal competence." Leonard Fein (Founder and former editor of MOMENT Magazine)
Each Pesach we seek ways to make the Seder different and stimulating, being faithful to pedagogy and halacha at the same time. Here is a fascinating Haggadah for all Pesachs, demonstrating how to be both halachic and creative, while learning and having fun in the process."
Rabbi Haskel Lookstein, Orthodox, Principal of the RAMAZ School, NYC
A Different Night is to my mind the best and most interesting Haggadah to appear in many years. The authors have managed to structure the book in imaginative ways that engage family members of all ages in serious and engaging discussions that explore the ever expanding meanings of the Passover Haggadah. The book is truly a delight. Dr. Barry W. Holtz Associate Professor of Jewish Education, Jewish Theological Seminary of America Editor, Back to the Sources: Reading the Classic Jewish Texts
This rich Haggadah enables Jews to connect with their tradition in deeply personal ways, while at the same time opening the tradition to Jews, showing it to be responsive and flexible. As I prepared for Pesach last year, this Haggadah taught me that our most important heritage is to question. It opened our Seder to deep and exciting discussions.
