A Passover Haggadah: Go Forth and Learn

( 1 )

Overview

Hebrew and English text with new commentary and essays.

Rabbi Silber has given us two books in one: the Haggadah itself, in English and Hebrew, with his seder commentary and a collection of essays that provide close readings of the classic biblical and rabbinic texts that inform Seder-night ritual and narration.

Overview

Hebrew and English text with new commentary and essays.

Rabbi Silber has given us two books in one: the Haggadah itself, in English and Hebrew, with his seder commentary and a collection of essays that provide close readings of the classic biblical and rabbinic texts that inform Seder-night ritual and narration. Both parts work beautifully together to illuminate the central themes of Passover: peoplehood, Covenant, our relationship to ritual, God’s presence in history, and other important issues that resonate with us all. Just as midrash attempts to bridge the gap between ancient text and contemporary meaning, Rabbi Silber’s Haggadah provides new sources of insight that deepen the Passover experience for today’s readers.

Editorial Reviews

The Forward - Jay Michaelson
“For those with a serious Jewish background, or serious intellectual curiosity, [A Passover Haggadah] is a gold mine.”—Jay Michaelson, The Forward

 

The Lookstein Center

“This Haggadah is groundbreaking in its presentation of new, creative, peshat-based approaches to the traditional text of the Seder.”—The Lookstein Center

 

Jewish Book World

“Rabbi Silber’s midrashic method is deeply knowledgeable but never freighted with excessive reference. . . . This is a haggadah to study, slowly turning over the literary links that allow one part of the TANAKH to talk to another.”—Jewish Book World

 

Jewish Eye

“The essays, when taken together with Rabbi David Silber’s gifted writings, will surely further help enhance one’s appreciation of the holiness and historic importance of this sacred time of year.”—Jewish Eye

Rabbi David Wolpe

“Under the expert and artistic hand of Rabbi Silber, A Passover Haggadah yields meanings beyond what even the informed reader imagines. The commentary, like the haggadah itself, is gripping on the first reading, and even more rewarding on subsequent ones.”—Rabbi David Wolpe, Sinai Temple, Los Angeles, and author of Why Faith Matters
David Shatz

“With remarkable creativity, sensitivity, and ear for nuance, Rabbi David Silber illuminates the Haggadah text, Seder practices, and the larger biblical and rabbinic contexts in which these are rooted. This volume will help create a Seder full of meaning, poignancy, and enthusiasm.”—David Shatz, professor of philosophy, Yeshiva University
