Haaggadah-The Open Door
This haggadah fulfills its own stated goal of being "the essential Jewish travel guide," using the seder to transport readers from the past through the present to the future. A product of Reform Judaism, the book seeks to embrace and celebrate the "expanded" Jewish community, drawing upon the writings of female rabbis and relating Passover customs from all over the world. The book is gracefully illustrated with full-color drawings by Ruth Weisberg, and is complemented by more than 50 pages of traditional and new music. Jews who are seeking a diversity of voices and experiences at their seder will cheer the arrival of this haggadah, which reflects a fresh perspective on emancipation.
