The Moriah Haggadah
Collector's Edition

The illuminated haggadah is the most popular artistic book in Jewish history. The word "haggadah" means recital -- namely, reciting or telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt -- following the biblical exhortation to tell the next generation the story of the redemption of the Israelites. This special full-color collector's edition of The Moriah Haggadah, with art and calligraphy faithfully reproduced from the original hand-painted edition, is enhanced with a clear and precise English translation and commentary. All translations of biblical texts are from the 1917 and 1985 Jewish Publication Society translations of the TANAKH, which have been modified to make the texts gender sensitive.

Book of Legends/Sefer Ha-Aggadah: Legends from the Talmud and Midrash

The publication of the complete Book of Legends in English is a landmark event in Jewish learning. Since its original compilation (1908-11) by Bialik and Ravnitzky, two commanding figures in Hebrew literature, this work has been a classic text of rabbinic legend and lore. It is a thematic anthology of nonlegal rabbinic literature on all aspects of human life (e.g., creation, redemption, wisdom, clothing, folk medicine studied through Jewish stories, parables, sayings, homilies, and anecdotes). The translation by Braude is clear, lucid, and readable and includes interpolations that increase the sense and comprehension of the text. The introduction by David Stern analyzes both the volume's place in Rabbinic Judaism and the achievement of the compilers, noting both strengths and weaknesses.

ENCYCLOPEDIA OF JEWISH HUMOR (Hardback)

Henry D. Spalding

Jewish humor mirrors the minds and hearts of the Jewish people. It reflects their joys and sorrows, hopes and disappointments. Perhaps most significant, it demonstrates their willingness to poke fun at themselves, which has no doubt enabled Jews to endure centuries of hardship with head held high and a smile on their collective face.
