A rich celebration of Passover, featuring centuries of extraordinary art and artifacts. Gathered from across the centuries and around the world, this collection of Passover art and objects is at once a breathtaking visual treasury and a fascinating chronicle of Jewish life from the Middle Ages to the present day. Illustrated with dozens of stunning artifacts representing hundreds of years of this special observance, The Art of Passover resonates with the joyful spirit of the holiday and the devotion of those who celebrate it. Featured are illustrations from some of the most beautiful Haggadahs ever crafted, from the German Birds Head Haggadah and the Spanish Golden Haggadah of the fourteenth century to those illustrated by modern artists such as painter Ben Shahn. A seder plate used in the concentration camp at Terezin is a moving reminder of the darkest period in Jewish history. Rabbi Stephan O. Parnes offers insightful explanations of the religious, biblical, and historical symbols found in the pieces. Entertaining and informative commentaries by Bonni-Dara Michaels and Gabriel M. Goldstein examine the works from an artistic perspective, complementing the illustrations and enhancing our appreciation and understanding of this very special holiday.

Review:

"If you are invited to somebody's seder this year, this is the book to bring as a house gift. It will not only enlighten your hosts as to the beauty of the Haggadah, but it will make for delightful reading and study all through the year. . . every page will bring delight to the student of art and to the lover of Judaism. "
