THE AUTHORS are a father and son team who have shared 26 Seders. Noam, an American Jew, and Mishael, an Israeli, bring these creative cultures into dialogue. This Haggadah combines the experience of Mishael's bestselling Israeli haggadah, Halaila Hazeh (2004), and Noam's classic A Different Night (1997), that made Seders more participatory for hundreds of thousands. Both study and teach at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. Both believe that we can make our Judaism rich, thought-provoking and fun for all.
