Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A Passover Haggadah, retelling the Exodus of the Children of Israel from Egypt, guides families every year through their Passover Seder. A Passover Haggadah faithfully renders the entire text of story, prayer, and song, with commentary by Elie Wiesel. Expertly interwoven, Wiesel's commentary (recalling memories of his own boyhood Seders and reflecting on Israel's place in the modern world) may be read aloud, along with the traditional text, in whole or in part. Drawings by Mark Powdal add joyous, fearsome, and poignant moments to the reader's experience throughout. At the beginning, just before the recitation of the Kiddush, one illustration depicts a contemporary Seder table whose length stretches into a path crossing a huge picture of the desert of ancient Egypt. The scene in the book is the beginning of the journey, the table is the destination, and, with this beautiful Haggadah, the story continues among us. --Michael Joseph Gross

From Library Journal

The Passover Haggadah is a set form of benedictions, prayers, psalms, and commentary recited at the Passover seder. Numerous English-language and English/Hebrew Haggadot are available for home use, including Let My People Go: A Haggadah (Macmillan, 1973), also illustrated by Podwal but no longer in print. So how is this Haggadah different from all others? Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Holocaust survivor Wiesel's wise and compassionate commentary, poetic interpretations, lively retellings of ancient legends, and personal reminiscences, along with Podwal's powerful line drawings (only seen as sketches), make this a very special edition indeed, and one to be treasured for years to come. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel tells tales, his wife provides translations, and Dr Podwal includes his magical drawings. Wiesel's commentaries are printed in red (for example, for the Four Sons, he comments on the idea of Four Generations and the transmittal of heritage from knowing (wise) to not-knowing(cant even ask the question)). The classic Hebrew and English text of the traditional haggadah are in black ink. The Haggadah is in Right to Left format. While in English and Hebrew, there are no transliterations.

Format: Paperback
I'm not sure what to say other than that the one piece of Judaica I do collect is Haggadot.

This commentary has by far become my favorite. It's the voice of a wise person who loves the tradition yet isn't unwilling to question it, who lived through a faith-destroying event, yet retains fondness and love for the holiday and tradition. It's life affirming and tragic and sad and hopeful and innovative all at once.

It isn't the most religious commentary, but for most modern Jews, it could easily be the most moving. Many places can bring you to tears...from the tragedy, the beauty, the hope, and the magic of the holiday.

Just what i wanted. this Haggadah follows the complete seder but instead of the usual formal blather, it provides thoughtful historical insight. both Jews and non-Jews at our seder found its content enlightening. i'll buy more for next year.

My family has been using this Haggadah for our seder for years. We have enjoyed discussing the artwork, reading the unique commentary and discussing it. We have been using it for close to two decades and it has enriched our experience greatly.

Every year for the past 40 years I purchase at least one new Haggadah in preparation for the Seder. This is the first year I purchased an electronic Haggadah and I"m glad I did. It is beautifully laid out and illusrated and the commentary is equally beautiful...rather uplifting in the spirit of the holiday ..I'm not sure how I can use it during the seder, but I'm glad I had the chance to read it beforehand

It was time for my family to get new haggadot and I'm so thrilled with these. Well written with a lot of commentary and fantastic illustrations. Through using this haggadah, what can be a tedious and long meal, my family enjoyed recounting the story of Passover - and learned a few new things as well.

I always look for books with commentary and this had some commentary but not as much as I would have liked. It was however, easy for the children to read,

Out dated, retro, obscure, sexist language. Not user friendly and lacks joy. Boring illustrations. I expected more from Wiesel. Returned it
