THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Haggadot

Continued from preceding page

Jewish Agenda, which pro-
vides do-it-yourself instruc-
tions for secular-style seders.
Bookstores also offer hag-
gadahs written for children
and students. There are also
numerous "coffee table" hag-
gadahs, such as the "Sarajevo
Haggadah," published by
Ktav Publishing House Inc.,
consisting of reproductions of
medieval texts. Others have
texts illustrated by such
famous contemporary artists
as Ben Shahn and Arthur
Szyk.
Szyk's is one of the most
popular art/gift haggadahs. It
is available in hard cover, or
with a decorated "silver"
cover inset with "jewels." The
jewel-like tones of the illustra-
tions and the elaborate
borders and friezes of flora
and fauna, and traditional
text recall the illuminated-
manuscript haggadahs. The
artist's satiric style, par-
ticularly in his depiction of
"The Four Sons," places
Szyk's artwork in the 20th
century.
Here are some of the popu-
lar paperback haggadahs:
"Gates of Freedom: A
Passover Haggadah," by
Chaim Stern. Visual inter-
pretations by Todd Siler.

Publishing and the author of

mat. History, songs and

Arabs Mark
Land Day

Jerusalem (JTA) — Land
Day was observed peacefully
by Israel's 700,000 Arabs
March 30. But sporadic vio-
lence, school and shop clo-
sures in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip demonstrated the
contrasting moods and prop-
ensities of Palestinian Arabs
who are citizens of Israel and
those in the administered
territories.
Land- Day originated in
1976 as a mass protest
against the confiscation of
Arab lands in Galilee to build
Jewish settlements. What
began as a general strike de-
generated into violent
demonstrations. Arab youths
confronted soldiers and bor-
der police who gunned down
six of them. The day has been
one of mourning and protest
by Palestinian Arabs ever
since.

Video Seder

Delray Beach, Fla. (JTA)
— It won't help you wash the
dishes or find the afikoman,
but Rabbi Joseph Langer of
Temple Beth Israel has
created a video tape that can
assist with the rest of the
seder.
On the video, the host of
the Tree of Life cable televi-
sion Jewish talk show in
south Florida explains how
and why to hold a Seder.
Song lyrics flash across the
screen and transliteration is
provided for the prayers.
