Haggadah Touched by Our Story
By: Rabbi Yechiel Spero
The Soul of the Seder through stories and reflections.
The Haggadah. It’s our story. Let's make sure we tell it well.
Seder night commemorates the greatest true story of all time — the night when Hashem, in His splendor, came down Himself, personally, to liberate His People, the Jews. It is the night of our miracles and our liberation.
It's the night of our stories.
Rabbi Yechiel Spero — acclaimed educator, erudite Torah scholar and, of course, gifted storyteller — tells some of those stories in this engaging new Haggadah that is certain to enhance our sedarim.
In his many bestselling books, Rabbi Spero does a masterful job of bringing Torah insights to life through unusual stories. Touched by Our Story includes his wide-ranging, stimulating commentary on the Haggadah and, of course, Rabbi Spero's trademark true stories. The Four Sons come to life, in tales like that of the rosh yeshiva who played "jacks" with a youngster or the gadol ha'dor who insisted a yeshiva change its language to accommodate two students who genuinely wanted to learn. We hear what the Klausenberger Rebbe had to say at a seder not long after his liberation, and are amazed at the connection between the plague of Frogs and the remarkable survival of two victims of a ghastly terror attack.
Enlightening, engaging and eye-opening, this is a Haggadah that will ensure a lively, meaningful and enjoyable seder for us, our guests, and — most important of all — our children, the next generation to tell the stories.
