"With this Passover Haggadah, Elie Wiesel and his friend Mark Podwal invite you to join them for the Passover Seder - the most festive event of the Jewish calendar. Read each year at the Seder table, the Haggadah recounts the miraculous tale of the liberation of the Children of Israel from slavery in Egypt, with a celebration of prayer, ritual, and song. Wiesel and Podwal guide you through the Haggadah and share their understanding and faith in a special illustrated edition that will be treasured for years to come." "Accompanying the traditional Haggadah text (which appears here in an accessible new translation) are Elie Wiesel's poetic interpretations, reminiscences, and instructive retelling of ancient legends. The Nobel laureate interweaves past and present as the symbolism of the Seder is explored. Wiesel's commentaries may be read aloud in their entirety or selected passages may be read each year to illuminate the timeless message of this beloved book of redemption."--Jacket

Fallen angels by Harold Bloom( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 492 libraries worldwide
"In this brief volume, celebrated critic Harold Bloom explores the universal fascination with angels. Drawing on his remarkable intimacy with the "long literary tradition [that] extends from ancient Persia through Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and the various American religions," Bloom focuses in particular on the metaphoric power of angels. Examining sources that range from Zoroastrian texts, the Bible, and Kabbalah to Hamlet, Milton's Paradise Lost, and Tony Kushner's Angels in America, Bloom concludes that we are all fallen angels. "The center of any discussion of fallen angels has to be Adam," Bloom writes, "who seems to me a far greater fallen angel than Satan." Ultimately, for Bloom, "fallenness" is a defining characteristic of the human condition: the recognition of our own mortality
