The questions are extracted from Leibowitz’s renowned weekly Torah study sheets and guide readers through an analysis of the Haggadah text and the sources upon which it is based. The editors, both former students of Nechama Leibowitz’s, provide suggested answers. In addition to the English translation, the full Hebrew text of the Passover Haggadah is provided.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

" [...] The full text of the Haggada is included, but the book will be most useful in the hands of a good Seder leader, who can offer up Leibowitz's insights and challenge the guests to find new meanings in passages they have read - or, more likely, skimmed - dozens of times." —Andrew Silow-Carroll, Forward

"Like a key that unlocks the door to a room of buried treasure, Haggadat Nechama enables the reader to touch, as if holding in her hand, newer, more shining and beautiful jewels of understanding into the paradigmatic learning experience we call the Passover Seder." —Mordechai Ben-Dat, The Canadian Jewish News

"The learned market segment which traditionally leans to Artscroll has other options to expand their Seder fare. Studies on the Haggadah from the teachings of Nechama Leibowitz draws from Leibowitz's classic chumash studies to provide new insights." —Deborah Stone, Australian Jewish News
