Our Passover Haggadah - Weitzman Exclusive
Our BESTSELLING Haggadah is now in its fourth printing!
Over 4000 sold and published exclusively for the Weitzman Museum, this vividly illustrated Passover Haggadah will become a staple at your family's Seder table—main text in English with prayers and blessings in both English and Hebrew. Lyrics to traditional Passover songs included.
Long-time Museum supporters and friends Marian Wolgin and Norman Wolgin z”l have found a unique and sentimental way to give to the Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History. In 1992, Marian and their daughter Amy set about creating their own family Haggadah. Their mission was to design one that was meaningful and dignified and would suit the needs of their extended family, a little more contemporary and relevant.
Amy tackled the research, ensuring all the essential components were included. Woven throughout is the edict, and thou shalt tell your children. Through the story of the Israelites seeking freedom from slavery in Egypt, the text suggests the importance of pursuing freedom on every level; physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual freedom.
Deborah Keyser Dion beautifully illustrated the book, and many of the illustrations include traditional ceremonial items owned and used each year at Pesach by the Wolgin family.
Sadly, Amy Wolgin Weiner died before the final Haggadah came to fruition. For the first ten years, the family offered copies of the Haggadah for donations to Amy's Ventures at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House. Since 2011, and now in its fourth printing, the Wolgins have generously decided that Our Passover Haggadah would benefit the Weitzman Museum in honor of Amy.
