"Haggadah for the American Family"
English version service written by Rabbi Martin Berkowitz
Temple Adath Israel, Merion, PA
The Haggadah (Hebrew: "telling"; plural: Haggadot) is a text that contains the service of the Passover Seder. Reading the Haggadah at the Seder table is a fulfillment of the scriptural commandment in the Book of Exodus (13:8). There are myriad versions of Haggadot. Some are the precious works of distinguished artists; some are corporate promotional giveaways; others are published by kibbutzim, the military and so forth. The earliest surviving Haggadot are from the 14th century. Certain of them contain beautiful illustrative illuminations.
