JDC Haggadah Recalls History of Rescue and Renewal

In Every Generation: The JDC Haggadah is hot off the presses in time for your Passover seder.  This new haggadah retells the biblical tale of Jewish freedom and redemption utilizing newly released photographs, letters, and documents from the celebrated JDC Archives.

“Through its pictures and captions drawn from the archives of JDC, this unique edition of this ancient text portrays the variety and breadth of our people and communicates in a powerful and authentic voice the journey from degradation to freedom that the Haggadah celebrates and that the Joint Distribution Committee makes possible,” says David Rabbi Ellenson, president of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.

In Every Generation was published by JDC in honor of the 80th birthday of former JDC President Heinz Eppler with funding from his family.
