Marcia Falk (Brandeis ’68) will read from and discuss her new Passover Haggadah, “Night of Beginnings: A Passover Haggadah,” which returns to the roots of the festival with a full recounting of and original commentary on the Exodus story. This “radicalizing” of the seder—rooting it to its most ancient source, which is largely absent from the traditional Haggadah and modern Haggadot—is also radical in another sense, re-creating the rabbinic offerings with new blessings, poems and kavanot (“directions of the heart”).

Available now at Bookshop, Amazon and Jewish Publication Society/University of Nebraska Press. If you order the book from JPS/UNP, you can save 40% with the code 6AS22.

HBI is honored to have funded a portion of Falk’s research.

This event is co-sponsored by The Brandeis Alumni Association.
