Original paper wrappers. 4to, 28 cm. 37 pages. “This Haggadah generally follows the text of the New Union Haggadah (ed. Herbert Bronstein) reprinted with the permission of the Central Conference of American Rabbis. One passage was adapted from The Rainbow Seder (Arthur Waskow) reprinted with permission of the author; and another from A Seder Celebration (Robert Reiner) reprinted with permission of the author.” (from Acknowledgements) “[T]his Haggadah was prepared to be used as part of the 1985 Shabbat Hagadol celebration with guests participating from the Black Community. It can, however, be used in traditional seders as a social justice Haggadah where only Jewish participants are present. (This latter option would require only one change- an adaption of the second paragraph of the Haggadah.)” (from introduction to the first edition). Celebrates the commonality between redemption of ancient Israel from Egypt and the ongoing struggle for equality and civil rights among African Americans. Most of the material is in English, although the prayers for various seder rubrics appear also in Hebrew. An example of a joint response to racism and antisemitism.
