Haggadah: Night of Emunah
By: Rabbi Binyomin Pruzansky
Stories and insights on the Haggadah
Prepare for a journey...
Out of servitude...
This is the night.
Pesach is called the holiday of emunah, of faith. As we sit at our Seder table speaking of the wonders and miracles of the Exodus, we ignite a flame of emunah that will burn brightly throughout the year. Rabbi Binyomin Pruzansky is a brilliant storyteller, and in this unusual Haggadah he uses that talent to bring the story of Yetziyas Mitzrayim into our stories - our lives, challenges, hopes and accomplishments. And, especially, into our emunah.
In addition to fascinating Torah insights, Rabbi Pruzansky offers story after story that highlights the emunah of the Jews, both famous personalities and simple people with rock-solid faith. He shares "kriyas Yam Suf" stories - when a person feels there is no way to go forward and Hashem miraculously brings him to where he wants to be. We will find emunah in a dangerous Arab village and on Brooklyn's Ocean Parkway. In the Soviet army and a luxury Pesach hotel. In traffic jams and basketball courts. We will explore the faith of our ancestors in Egypt, and the faith of people just like us. We will hear great stories -- and we will find ourselves strengthened.
Haggadah shel Pesach: Night of Emunah pulsates with the energy of faith and hope; perfect for the holiday of emunah -- and just what we need to make our Seder table vibrant and meaningful on this night of renewed faith and trust.
