Collection Summary:

This collection contains published Passover haggadot (singular: haggadah), mimeographed or photocopied haggadot intended for local use, and facsimiles of early printed haggadot. These haggadot were produced in the United States, Israel, and the UK (London), between the 1920's and 2000's. They reflect Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist Judaism, Humanistic Judaism, feminism, the struggle for Soviet Jewry, the civil rights movement in the US, interfaith concerns, and other influences on and changes in Jewish life in the twentieth century. The collection includes haggadot re-written for children. Languages of translation and commentary include English, French, Russian, Romanian, and Spanish. The collection includes eighty haggadot.

Historical Background:

Sylvia B. Kruger, mother, grandmother, and librarian, collected these haggadot as part of her personal Judaica collection. Sylvia B. Kruger left East Lansing in Fall 2013 to make her home in Israel, at which time she donated them to the MSU Libraries Special Collections.
