The Szyk Haggadah: Freedom Illuminated


Arthur Szyk (pronounced "Shick") created his magnificent Haggadah in Lodz, on the eve of the Nazi occupation of his native Poland. There is no Haggadah like it, before or since, 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 and extremely practical English text by Rabbi Byron L. Sherwin, ideal for use at any family Seder, and a special commentary section by Rabbi Sherwin and Irvin Ungar gives insight into both the rituals of the Seder and Szyk's rich illustrations.
Available in both hardcover and paperback editions, "The Szyk Haggadah" will transform the Seder, bringing the story of the Exodus from Egypt into a more contemporary light.
Praise for "The Szyk Haggadah:
""Szyk's Haggadah is still fabulous and fresh."
