The Lovell Haggadah, infused with vibrant artwork and lively discussion questions and activities, represents the culmination of a seven-year journey of Jewish learning and art. Comprehensive Hebrew text and contemporary egalitarian translation by author and illustrator Rabbi Matthew L. Berkowitz, make this haggadah accessible and inviting.

Lovell Haggadah

Praise for The Lovell Haggadah

“…[Rabbi Berkowitz]… infuses the text with beautiful, bordering on breathtaking symbolic illustrations in color that combine art and Hebrew lettering. Each of the twenty-seven illustrations is an 'archaeological dig, demonstrating the ability of art to interpret sacred text,’ the rabbi writes….” The Forward

“…Though Berkowitz's original works are deeply rooted in traditional sources, the Haggadah is not deaf to contemporary issues. The language is gender neutral… and is written with a ‘questioning consciousness,’ as Berkowitz writes in the introduction. It also reflects modern-day concerns pertaining to the State of Israel…” Jewish Telegraphic Agency

“…In addition to insightful explanations of the seder rituals and of each artwork, the Haggadah offers relevant quotes about each section from Jewish sages, poetry, "reflections" for introspection, and suggestions for creative seder customs…" The Jewish Week

“...A visual feast.  His strong lettering and vibrant images, his sensitive English rendering of the Hebrew text and penetrating commentary appeal to the heart as much as to the mind.  The artwork pulsates with landscapes of Israel, insights of midrash, and subtleties of the Hebrew language.  Rabbi Berkowitz has praised God with every skill at his disposal…” Dr. Ismar Schorsch, Rabbi Herman Abramovitz Professor of Jewish History, Chancellor Emeritus, Jewish Theological Seminary ofAmerica

Rabbi Matthew L. Berkowitz is Director of Israel Programs for the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. He and his wife Miriam, together with their three children, made aliyah in 2009 to Jerusalem. Matt is co-founder of a new Jerusalem-based venture - Kol HaOtthat weaves the arts and Jewish learning together through interactive Jewish educational art programs. An accomplished artist and sofer, he was formally trained in Jewish scribal art in Jerusalem. Ordained from JTS in 1999, Rabbi Berkowitz, a Wexner fellow alumnus, is a respected Jewish educator with a wide knowledge of practical rabbinics and Jewish sources which he shares with learning communities both in Israel and North America.
