Kol Menachem Haggadah - The Slager Edition - Arizal
The Kol Menachem Haggadah adds layer upon layer of fresh insight to the age-old celebration of our journey from slavery to freedom. Its richly textured commentary creatively blends traditional, mystical and life-enhancing insights, while each step of the Seder is explained clearly in simple language. This remarkably handsome volume is adorned with more ornate Hebrew typography, gold and maroon highlights, and a luxurious, hand-tooled leather-style binding. Substantial sponsorship has enabled this elegant Haggadah to be made available for an extremely reasonable price. The commentaries have been culled from a vast array of sources, spanning from the Twentieth Century back to antiquity. Special emphasis has been give to the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, many of which appear in English here for the first time.
The award winning layout of the Kol Menachem Haggadah is pleasing to the eye, artistically beautiful, and clear, and it contains explanatory notes which are helpful to the beginner Seder leader as well as to the most educated veteran. But the commentary is the true tour de force of this work. It provides important material in four areas of interest: The text itself, Jewish law, personal growth, and mystical/inspirational themes. In each of these four areas, the commentaries are startlingly relevant to contemporary life, and of practical help to every level of reader.
- Beautifully typeset, with gold-leaf like margin designs.
- Clear instructions on how to conducting the seder interspersed throughout.
Beautiful gift for anyone.
