6000 Editions and Counting: Why Do We Keep Revising the Haggadah?
National Museum of American Jewish History

Due to the health risks posed by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), this event has been cancelled.
The Passover Haggadah is a unique text that emerged as an oral tradition, and continues to evolve. Today, there are more than 6000 editions—and counting. Professor Vanessa Ochs will explore this fascinating legacy and the reasons that people continue to revise it for their annual seders.
