The Haggadah is the text which accompanies the Jewish ceremonial dinner, known as the Seder, which takes place on the first night of the Passover, generally in the Spring. The festival commemorates one of the fundamental moments of Jewish history, dating back over 3500 years: the end of bondage in Egypt and the Exodus. The Haggadah's rhythm of songs and questions is a meditation on freedom. Its central importance to the Jewish faith means it is one of the Hebraic texts that has been commentated and illustrated the most often. Following the tradition, this volume features a Haggadah illustrated by Gerard Garouste, one of the leading names in contemporary French painting who offers a personal visual commentary. His images also comprise - and this is entirely new - a sort of guessing game which children in particular, but also all those gathered around the table, will enjoy taking part in. The Haggadah is not only a book. It is also a practical guide which follows the order of the Seder ceremony. This edition includes all the commentaries and indications needed to enable a successul celebration in the traditional atmosphere of the event, while at the same time inviting celebrants to challenge their intelligence, taste and spirituality.
