The most unique element of this Haggadah is its English portion, specially prepared with easily interpreted phonetic Hebrew. This transliterated Hebrew Haggadah enables everyone to properly pronounce the authentic Hebrew recitations and perform the ceremonial procedures. The pure Hebrew portion occupies the opposite side of the book for those who are fluent in the Hebrew language.
The structure of The Haggadah incorporates a leader with interaction from the other guests at the Seder; by virtue of being well documented and easy to follow, Rabbi Martin Berkowitz’ American Haggadah book embraces and supports active participation by Jewish Americans of all Hebrew skill levels.
The quality of the printing and the content of the Haggadah have stood the test of time as it has been in print for over 60 years. This Haggadah was originally distributed (over 500,000 copies) with Chase & Sanborn Coffee as a premium. In most recent years, it has been sold to small Judaic stores, who specialize in the sale of religious objects pertinent to the Jewish faith. Since the Haggadah is used in conjunction with a group setting, it is sold as a pack of 10 books.
