The Passover Haggadah - Deluxe Cover
The Passover Haggadah
With Commentary from the Classic Commentators, Midrash, Kabbalah, the Chasidic Masters and the Haggadah of the Lubavitcher RebbeTranslated by: Rabbi Yosef Marcus
Year after year we gather with family and friends for the traditional Passover Seder and reading of the Haggadah. Often times, the meaning behind the myriad of details accompanying the seder are lost to us as we make our way through the Four Questions, the four cups of wine, the matzoh and the bitter herbs and read the ancient words of the Haggadah. In the new Passover Haggadah layer after layer of meaning is uncovered as the dynamic text provides meaning and inspiration culled from all levels of Torah interpretation. In addition, a powerful message of immediate relevancy to our own lives is fleshed out and presented in an engaging and moving way. Compiled by well-known author and translator Rabbi Yosef Marcus, the volume gives the reader a comprehensive and fundamental understanding of the Seder and the festival of Passover. Anthologized from hundreds of commentators, classic to obscure, the commentary is crowned with the insights culled from the classic Haggadah of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Set in elegant, two-color type with lively, original artwork, and printed in a deluxe gift edition, the Haggadah sets a new standard for beauty, clarity, comprehensiveness and relevance.

This work is as beautiful in its contents as it is in its appearance. It is comprehensive both in explaining Pesach and the Hagaddah, highly insightful and thought-provoking in its commentary, and aesthetically so appealing as it leads you to insights drawn from Kaballah and Chassidus and the entire range of the Jewish tradition. And, for the more scholarly inclined, the 364 footnotes will draw you even more deeply into the study of the Seder, the Jewish people`s most widely celebrated ritual. -- Joseph Telushkin author of Jewish Literacy and A Code of Jewish EthicsLanguage: Hebrew / English
