Freedom Illuminated: Understanding The Szyk Haggadah lays the groundwork for full appreciation of Arthur Szyk's masterwork. Edited by Byron L. Sherwin and Irvin Ungar, the book offers three original scholarly essays: Tom Freudenheim examines Arthur Szyk as artist; Shalom Sabar explores the history of illustrated Passover Haggadot and analyzes the symbolism of each painted miniature; and Irvin Ungar provides a history of The Szyk Haggadah itself.
