Reviews - What do customers think about The Eybeshitz Haggadah: Experiencing Redemption?
A wonderful Haggadah Apr 7, 2008
Rabbi Shalom Hammer has ably translated and brought together writings of Rav Eybschutz to create this 'Haggadah'. It contains along with the traditional text and translation a number of insightful essays on the Haggadah. Among these is one which points to the centrality of joy in song in the Jewish tradition, and the special role the Prophetess Miriam plays in this. The Haggadah is introduced by Rabbi Berel Wein who provides the historical background including a consideration of the famous controversy with Yaakov Emden. The proceeds for the sale of the Haggadah are to be contributed to the Hesder Yeshiva of Sderot. This is another good reason to have this outstanding Haggadah on one 's Seder table.
