Roots and Branches: A Humanist Haggadah for Passover

by Sandi Horwitz, Barry N. Olshen and Lisa Wright

Provides the basis for a unique, contemporary approach to the Passover celebration. “Roots” suggests the traditional story and its associations. “Branches”refers to those Jewish exodus experiences that have shaped the development of modern Jewry and that have been incorporated into our new Passover liturgy. In addition to Torah and prophetic excerpts, you will find many illustrious voices from our modern literature, including Yehudah Amichai, Judy Chicago, Amos Oz, and Elie Wiesel. Weaving poetry and prose with artwork and with our own ritualized and evocative language, we have created a unified, educational, and inspiring seder for contemporary North American Jewry.
