From the editors of Tablet magazine and the creators of the popular Unorthodox podcast, The Unorthodox Haggadah is a modern spin on the traditional Haggadah, the story of the exodus recited at the Passover Seder for thousands of years. This one is made particularly for a younger, less religious, more urbane contemporary Jewish audience.
Alana Newhouse is the editor in chief of Tablet, a daily online magazine of Jewish news, ideas, and culture launched in 2009.

She also started a line of Forward-branded books with W.W. Norton and edited its maiden publication, A Living Lens: Photographs of Jewish Life from the Pages of the Forward. A graduate of Barnard College and Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, Newhouse has contributed to the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe, and Slate.
