The Polychrome Historical Haggadah for the Passover Seder has a commentary, interpretive translation, introduction, and notes. The Foreword by Tzvee Zahavy describes the Seder as a scribal opera and the Haggadah as its libretto. This classic edition of the Passover Haggadah was designed by Rabbi Jacob Freedman to expose to the readers the composite literary layers of the book and its system of scriptural quotations. It has Freedman's vibrant English translation. The Hebrew text is printed in seven colors to reveal the historical periods of origin of the sources for every paragraph, verse, phrase, and even for single words. This Haggadah also has several full-page color reproductions of illustrations from famous medieval Haggadahs, a bibliography and an index to all the sources cited in the marginal notes.

The book features an extended introduction by Tabory, the classic Hebrew haggadah text side by side with its English translation, and Tabory's clear and insightful critical-historical commentary.

The Haggadah is one of the most beloved books in Judaism. It recounts the story of the Israelites' liberation from slavery and the Exodus from Egypt, a story that is celebrated each year in every Jewish home at the Passover Seder, whose liturgy the Haggadah contains. This Haggadah is illustrated with magnificent illuminations from medieval Haggadot in the renowned collection of the British Library. Both Ashkenazic and Sephardic in origin, the Haggadot produced herein are not pristine; they were not created to be kept in a cloister and studied by scholars. Rather their wine-stained pages and worn condition testify to the many seders at which they themselves were read by generations of Jews. With a commentary that both amplifies the traditional text and draws on the remarkable illustrative material, The Illuminated Haggadah is a tribute to the art of illumination and a profound celebration of the Feast of Freedom.

The Reader's Guide to Judaism is a survey of English-language translations of the most important primary texts in the Jewish tradition. The field is assessed in some 470 essays discussing individuals (Martin Buber, Gluckel of Hameln), literature (Genesis, Ladino Literature), thought and beliefs (Holiness, Bioethics), practice (Dietary Laws, Passover), history (Venice, Baghdadi Jews of India), and arts and material culture (Synagogue Architecture, Costume). The emphasis is on Judaism, rather than on Jewish studies more broadly.

Medieval Jerusalem was a vibrant international center, home to multiple cultures, faiths, and languages. Harmonious and dissonant voices from many lands, including Persians, Turks, Greeks, Syrians, Armenians, Georgians, Copts, Ethiopians, Indians, and Europeans, passed in the narrow streets of a city not much larger than midtown Manhattan. Patrons, artists, pilgrims, poets, and scholars from Christian, Jewish, and Islamic traditions focused their attention on the Holy City, endowing and enriching its sacred buildings, creating luxury goods for its residents, and praising its merits. This artistic fertility was particularly in evidence between the eleventh and fourteenth centuries, notwithstanding often devastating circumstances—from the earthquake of 1033 to the fierce battles of the Crusades. So strong a magnet was Jerusalem that it drew out the creative imagination of even those separated from it by great distance, from as far north as Scandinavia to as far east as present-day China. This publication is the first to define these four centuries as a singularly creative moment in a singularly complex city. Through absorbing essays and incisive discussions of nearly 200 works of art, Jerusalem, 1000–1400: Every People Under Heaven explores not only the meaning of the city to its many faiths and its importance as a destination for tourists and pilgrims but also the aesthetic strands that enhanced and enlivened the medieval city that served as the crossroads of the known world.
