By Rabbi Moshe Weinberger
How do we sweeten the maror in our lives?
Why is the Seder all about asking questions?
How do we reconcile the depth of our exile with the promise of redemption?
Which lessons of emunah can we glean from the Seder, and how do we teach them to our children?
This Haggadah, with commentary drawn from Rav Moshe Weinberger’s teachings from recent years, addresses these questions and others by circling around and building upon nine themes:
Chametz and Matzah, Sweetening the Maror, Exile and Redemption, Structure of the Seder, Educating our Children, Springtime and Renewal, Chosen Nation, Questions and Answers, and Emunah
Readers may trace these themes throughout the Haggadah using icons beside each part of the commentary, enabling them to delve into various parts of the Haggadah associated with each theme, and thereby truly connect to each topic; this will help make the Seder a more meaningful and transformative experience.
In the merit of the growth, connection with Hashem, and inspiration readers draw from these teachings, we hope that very soon, G-d will answer our prayer, “Next year in Jerusalem!”
