Words can not do this Haggadah justice. It is so beautiful, an absolute “must add” to your Jewish library. It features Zion Ozeri’s magnificent photographs of Jewish life next to the traditional text of the Hagaddah written in Hebrew and English.
Pictures Tell is an exceptional way to experience the Passover seder while appreciating the rich mosaic of Jewish life, and it will surely add depth to your reading of the Hagaddah.
“Zion Ozeri’s photographs create a stunning visual narration of the journeys and stories of the Jewish people, told through the traditional lens of the Passover Haggadah and the expert lens of a master photographer.” —Rabbi Daniel Bouskila, Sephardic Educational Center.
“Zion Ozeri is one of our generation’s preeminent chroniclers of the Jewish story. His photographs of Jewish life, from Sa’ana to Riga, are modern classics. Joining those images with compelling commentary, this Haggadah is a beautiful addition to the Jewish bookshelf.” —Yossi Klein Halevi Senior Fellow, Shalom Hartman Institute.

Pictures Tell – A Passover Hagaddah
Born in Israel to immigrants from Yemen and currently living in New York City, Zion Ozeri is one of the world’s leading photographers exploring the Jewish experience.
Raised in Israel during a period of mass immigration, he interacted with many diverse cultures. This unique background gives him a cross-cultural perspective that suffuses his work.
Ozeri graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology and Pratt Institute in New York City. His photographs have appeared in many national publications and have been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. Ozeri has published several books, including The Jewish World Family Haggadah and a coffee table book titled The Jews of Yemen: The Last Generation.
He won a Simon Rockower Award for Excellence in Jewish Journalism in 2004 and is the recipient of the Covenant Award for 2013.
Ozeri founded the Jewish Lens curriculum and project in 2004, offered through Beit Hatfutsot Museum in Israel. In addition, Ozeri founded and is the creative director of the early childhood project Within the Image and DiverCity Lens, a curriculum and program implemented since 2010 in New York City public schools through the New York City Department of Education.
