Today in Tablet Magazine, authors, artists, and a boxer offer personal pages to the Haggadah (it’s really cool!). What makes that night different from all other nights? Judith Shulevitz, author of the newly published The Sabbath World, casts an analytic glance at the rituals and finds Greek at their heart. Joan Nathan discusses charoset before divulging the recipe she’ll use this year: charoset balls whose provenance dates to the 13th century. The Scroll would like to remind you that charoset is good and all, but the Hillel sandwich requires only horseradish.
