Garouste's illustrations are inspired by the historic stories told in the 'Haggadah', written by Marc-Alain Ouaknin, professor and author of several books on Judaism. But 'Haggadah' is more than a book, it is a guide that follows the order of the Seder ceremony. This edition includes all the instructions in English and Hebrew text necessary to carry out a celebration in the traditional atmosphere of the event, and invites celebrants to challenge their intelligence, taste and spirituality. The 'Haggadah' is the text for the Jewish ceremonial dinner, known as the Seder, which takes place on the first night of Passover. The festival commemorates one of the fundamental moments of Jewish history - the end of bondage in Egypt and the Exodus over 3,500 years ago.
