Maxwell House Haggadah: How a Coffee Company Influenced Passover

Hosted by

If you're attending a Passover seder this year, there's some chance the text you'll use a haggadah published by Maxwell House to guide you through the service. For decades, the coffee company has given the text out for free with cans of coffee. Rabbi Carole Balin, Professor of History at Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, joins us to explain how and all those booklets have influenced American Judaism.
