It’s the fashionable thing to bring out your own Haggadah.

Writers Jonathan Safran Foer and Nathan Englander collaborated on a celebrated edition last year with the help of a few literary pals.

Now veteran American philanthropist Edgar Bronfman, the former president of the World Jewish Congress, has joined the Pesach club.

Published by Rizzoli, his Haggadah is illustrated by his wife Jan Aronson. It is a radical adaptation with a completely English text and a central place to Moses (unlike the traditional version that barely mentions him).
