      The Haggadah has always been a cozy, homey book. It’s the only Jewish book I know of where, at the end of Passover, people pile them up and put a rubber band around them and stick them in the box with their Passover pots and pans and spoons and dishes, and off that box goes into the basement or the attic until next year.   This book also draws attention to earlier Haggadah-related artwork that Szyk painted while living in Paris in the s for his first, but unpublished, Haggadah, as .

    Editorial Reviews. To have Book of Legends/Sefer Ha-Aggadah available in English is to open to the entire English-reading world -- Jew, non-Jew, religionist, secularist -- one of the very great creations of humankind: a rich and intricately woven tapestry of tales, homilies, legends and dreams that come to us from the very roots of the imagination.   There are numerous examples which tell the story of this liason but the most famous one is probably that of Sarajevo Haggadah. The Jews all over the world are cherishing the tradition of retelling the story of their exile from Egypt and during the holiday of Passover they read this story from a book known as Haggadah (heb. the telling).

    The Passover Haggadah provides the script for the meal and is a religious text unlike any other. It is the only sacred book available in so many varieties—from the Maxwell House edition of the s to the countercultural Freedom Seder —and it is the rare liturgical work that allows people with limited knowledge to conduct a complex. The first complete English translation of the Hebrew classic Sefer Ha-Aggadah brings to the English-speaking world the greatest and best-loved anthology of classical Rabbinic literature ever compiled. First published in Odessa in , it was recognized immediately as a masterwork in its own right, and reprinted numerous times in Hebrew poet Hayim Nahman Bialik and the renowned.
