The new Dutch Passover Haggadah (2011) is broad in a double sense: its Hebrew text and Dutch translations include variations that suit the different forms of variegated Dutch Judaism. In a literal sense, it is designed in a ‘landscape’ format and includes many visual features that make it an easy and attractive tool. Besides introducing this new Haggadah, this article offers an introduction to the Passover seder and its Biblical and rabbinic sources. It includes a detailed discussion of the of Deuteronomy 26:5–8 that is central in the Haggadah, and its relation to the early Christian interpretation of the Pesach traditions.
