Description:

This empowering resource for the spiritual revival of our times enables us to find deeper meaning in one of Judaisms most beloved traditions, the Passover Seder. This Haggadah commentary adds layer upon layer of new insight to the age-old celebration of the journey from slavery to freedomand makes its power accessible to all. It features traditional Hebrew text with a new translation designed to let people know exactly what the Haggadah says. Introductory essays help the reader understand the historical roots of the ancient holiday, the development of the Haggadah and how to make sense out of texts and customs that evolved over more than a thousand years. Framed with beautifully designed Talmud-style pages, My Peoples Passover Haggadah features commentaries by scholars from all denominations of Judaism. Readers are treated to insights by experts in such fields as the Haggadahs history; its biblical roots; its confrontation with modernity; and its relationship to rabbinic midrash and Jewish law, feminism, Chasidism, theology and kabbalah. No other volume provides the English language reader with such wide-ranging understanding of the Haggadah, the key to having the most meaningful Seder ever.
