UNBOUND – The Recreated Haggadah was designed and produced in Jerusalem by Eli Kaplan-Wildmann. You are invited to watch the video to see this book in action. Below, you will be able to find answers to some of the questions you may have.
Where can I get the Haggadah?
UNBOUND is available for purchase on this website. It can also be found on Ebay and Etsy.
Does the haggadah contain English translations?
Yes! The haggadah contains Hebrew text as well as contemporary, sensitive English translation of all text (except for Birkat Hamazon, which is not translated).
Is there an explanation of all the illustrations and designs?
There is – each copy comes with a pamphlet that contains some explanations of the various visual elements. For information regarding lesson plans and curriculum, please email Eli KW.
How can the whole text of the seder fit on 12 cards?
There’s only one way to find out – get yourself a copy! They are pretty big cards, as you can see in the video.
If it is unbound, how does it stay together?
The 12 cards that make up the haggadah can be attached to each other with the red cord; also, the haggadah comes in a custom box.
Is this an Orthodox, Conservative or a Reform haggadah? Is it specifically LGBTQ+, social activism, or feminist friendly?
UNBOUND contains the full traditional text, and can be used by all Jews who want to have a visually exciting seder. There is no additional text referencing specific social movements or ideas, but the images in UNBOUND hide many surprises. And each copy comes with a fabulous red tassel.
Are the pages numbered?
The front of each card is marked, showing its place in the order of the 12 cards.
How is the pricing determined?
UNBOUND is a limited edition, partially handcrafted fine art book. Due to its unique design, each copy of UNBOUND requires the printer to execute the work using non-mechanized methods, and more handmade elements are added in the designer’s studio. Also, the haggadah’s size and weight require special shipping from Jerusalem to North America.
Can I purchase a large amount of copies?
Please be in touch with Eli KW to discuss large orders.
