The Polychrome Historical Haggadah for the Passover Seder has a commentary, interpretive translation, introduction, notes, reference and bibliography. The Foreword by Tzvee Zahavy describes the Seder as a scribal opera and the Haggadah as its libretto. This classic edition of the Passover Haggadah was designed by Rabbi Jacob Freedman to expose to the readers the composite literary layers of the book and its system of scriptural quotations. It has Freedman's vibrant English translation. The Hebrew test is encoded in different colors to reveal the historical periods of origin of the sources for every verse, phrase, and even for single words. This Haggadah also has several full-page color reproductions of illustrations from famous medieval Haggadahs, a bibliography and an index to all the sources cited in the marginal notes.

The Reader's Guide to Judaism is a survey of English-language translations of the most important primary texts in the Jewish tradition. The field is assessed in some 470 essays discussing individuals (Martin Buber, Gluckel of Hameln), literature (Genesis, Ladino Literature), thought and beliefs (Holiness, Bioethics), practice (Dietary Laws, Passover), history (Venice, Baghdadi Jews of India), and arts and material culture (Synagogue Architecture, Costume). The emphasis is on Judaism, rather than on Jewish studies more broadly.

This title examines the ritual murder accusation (or blood libel), one of the most heinous charges against the Jews in the history of medieval antisemitism. It traces the origins to the circumstances surrounding the death of William of Norwich in 1144 and the text of the 'Life and Passion' composed by the monk Thomas of Monmouth in 1150, in the period immediately following the English civil war, the Anarchy under King Stephen, and the Second Crusade. The charge arose as the result of a trial of an indebted knight, Simon de Novers, for killing his Jewish banker Deulesalt.
