Jan Aronson and her husband, Edgar M. Bronfman, the world- renowned philanthropist and Jewish leader who passed away in late December last year shared common passions for art and Judaism.
These passions combined to create the Bronfman Haggadah, a revolutionary Haggadah for the 21st century, which tells the traditional story of the Jews’ dramatic journey from slavery to freedom, against a background of Ms. Aronson’s bold and brilliant watercolor paintings, which brilliantly tell the story so critical to the Jewish history.
The printed version of the Bronfman Haggadah was published last year in time for Pesach, and this year, just a few months after Edgar Bronfman’s passing a digital version of the Bronfman Haggadah has been launched, which is compatible with all Apple iPads.
The Bronfman Haggadah app can either be used as a learning tool, or a stand-alone version alongside a traditional Haggadah. Anyone who purchases the App which is available from all the Apple stores and would like to purchase a printed version of the Bronfman Haggadah, which is distributed online through Barnes and Noble only need to click on the link to the Barnes & Noble website which they will find on the main page of the app to order a printed version.
Thanks to the magnificent quality of its artwork lovingly put on paper by Jan Aronson the Bronfman Haggadah is guaranteed to enrich the Passover Seder experience thanks to modern and refreshing interactive approach.
Commenting on the release of the digital version of the Bronfman Haggadah, Jan Aronson confirmed her delight that the joint project, which she instigated with her late husband has now become available in eBook format.
