"My family and guests loved it. First time we went back to Haggadah to finish the Seder after the meal."

"Thank you for a wonderful Haggadah. It honors our traditions and makes them relevant for today. Even my 13 and 15 year olds were inspired to participate "

"My family and I used this for our first Passover Seder tonight. We had a beautiful experience together. Everything was easy to follow and understand."

"The subtitle--a "simple" version--is not really true. We all felt the text was clear and thorough. This group of long-time Passover observers all learned things."

"We went through the whole Haggadah, the story was told nicely with both English and some Hebrew (and transliterations). We loved it "

"...a clear path to a lovely Passover dinner. Sharing this with newcomers puts them at ease to share in this beautiful tradition."

"Easy to follow, covered everything in a clear way for people unfamiliar with Passover. Appreciate the modern, liberal, inclusive tone. Highly recommended "

"I'm very glad we used 'The New American Haggadah' last night and we'll continue to use it in years to come."

"Easy to use. Covers all the basics and tells a great story."

"Fantastic Haggadah. It is the perfect length. Tells the story without being too redundant. I highly recommend this to every family."

"Just right It captured the traditional story--and not too long nor too short."



KEN ROYAL is a management consultant and writer. His articles, none of which are religious, have been published in the Gallup Management Journal, Investor's Business Daily, The Orange County Register, and The Detroit News. He is also the co-author of one Haggadah, which not only celebrates his heritage but also the values of family and freedom he cherishes. Ken lives in Southern California and Michigan with his wife and two children.

LAUREN ROYAL is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of many "truly enchanting" humorous historical romance novels--and one Haggadah, which isn't humorous, although her family always seems to spend much of the Seder laughing anyway. Lauren's books have earned raves from reviewers including Publishers Weekly, who calls her "an impressive talent." She lives in Southern California with her family and their constantly shedding cat.
