There are many classic and modern haggadot. Any recommendations? If so, why? And if available online (such as at HebrewBooks), please provide a link.

  • Should we close this as "subjective"? I had a similar idea last year and asked it in a more objective fashion: mi.yodeya.com/questions/569/… – Isaac Moses Mar 29 '11 at 15:02
  • Close it as redundant to the other, at least. – msh210 Mar 29 '11 at 15:23
  • If it's acceptable despite subjectivity, then it's not redundant. The other question asked for guidelines, while this one asks for specific recommendations. – Isaac Moses Mar 29 '11 at 15:46
  • Perhaps a way to make this one more objective would be to reframe it as "I'd like a Hagada [that facilitates a Seder] with the following characteristics: ... Which would you recommend, and why?" – Isaac Moses Mar 29 '11 at 15:47

    @R'Isaac Moses, re your reply to my comment: It's redundant precisely to the extent that it's not subjective: It's the subjective counterpart to the other question. – msh210 Mar 30 '11 at 2:42

Maxwell House - good to the last drop


1) Favorite to use YU Hagaddah - Hebrew by Koren

2) Favorite to learn Hagaddah of Gr"a

3) Favorite High-end Moss Hagaddah


Abarbanel's haggada is a classic. I find myself in awe of it every year over again.

(Mosad R' Kook recently reprinted it, but the old print is on hebrewbooks.)


The Hirsch Haggadah is excellent, and unusual in that it contains extensive commentary to parts of the haggadah that often get short shrift, such as kiddush and birkas hamazon.


Haggadah Migdal Eider is a great and classic all rounder.

  • this one? hebrewbooks.org/10883 is that because of the plethora of perushim (150)? – josh waxman Mar 29 '11 at 21:14

    It's not really a plethora of perushim. It's just a collection of comments and ideas from a plethora of perushim. They are all highly abridged. Still, I have one and I like using it at the seder, since I can glance at quick snippets from a wide variety of sources. – jake Mar 29 '11 at 22:09
  • yaavetz, exactly my reason. – Yahu Mar 30 '11 at 5:15
