A Passover Story for a Diverse America

New World Haggadah

EventBook Launch
Sunday, March 27 at 7:00 pm — At The Center for Jewish History

Each generation looks at Passover with fresh eyes.

Ilan Stavans, one of today’s foremost interpreters of Jewish and Latino cultures, has edited a new Haggadah that fits the needs of our age. It reflects the journey of Jews expelled from Spain in 1492 to the New World and looks at how the narrative of the exile from Egypt has been embraced in Argentina, Mexico, Cuba, and among Latinos and Jews in the United States from the 19th century through the Civil Rights Era on to our time.

The book launch celebrated a Passover story that befits our cosmopolitan city and country.
