Missing Contributor

The October 5 article, “Haggadah Editor Admits Using Another’s Texts,” identifies three of the four contributors to the Haggadah: Jeffrey Goldberg, Lemony Snicket and Nathan Englander. It failed to mention the fourth contributor, Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, who, as a MacArthur Fellow, National Jewish Book Award Winner, Koret Prize winner, and author of nine books, is hardly irrelevant to the readers of the Forward. What are we to make of the fact that the Forward saw fit to identify the three male contributors to the Hagaddah and omit mention of the only woman?
