A haggadah unlike any other -- modern and illuminated -- illustrated by a master miniaturist. 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 of The Szyk Haggadah, 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. Includes 48 color 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.

About the author
Arthur Szyk (1884 1951) was known primarily as a political illustrator of the highest caliber. Eleanor Roosevelt once referred to him as a one-man army, and indeed, he saw himself as a soldier in art. Byron L. Sherwin, a Jewish scholar and ethicist, has served on the faculty of the Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies since 1970. He lives in Chicago.

Irvin Ungar, an antiquarian bookseller and former rabbi, has championed the rediscovery of Szyk s work. He lives in Burlingame, California.
