Biblical and Modern Perspectives on the Haggadah
with Marc Zvi Brettler
Bernice and Morton Lerner Professor in Judaic Studies, Duke University
The Haggadah and the seder are rabbinic innovations, based on a biblical festival that remains most relevant in modern times. How did the Haggadah develop? What biblical elements does it contain, and how are the multiple different biblical views of Passover made to fit together by the rabbis? And what relevance do these ancient texts—the Bible and the Haggadah—have for us today as we approach Passover? Presented in partnership with the Haberman Institute for Jewish Studies.
