By Rabbi Yechiel Spero
The Pesach Haggadah with soul-stirring stories and commentary.
Rabbi Yechiel Spero is the author of the very popular Touched by a Story series. He is a charismatic teacher and speaker - and it carries over to his writing. Add to that his extraordinary knack for choosing stories and ideas and presenting them with clarity and excitement.
He comes to his task with outstanding qualifications. He is a conscientious classroom rebbe who actually teaches the Haggadah year after year, so he knows what works, motivates, and inspires. He sees what makes students and their parents enthusiastic about Yiddishkeit, and in this volume he shares his experience with us by teaching the Haggadah in his own inimitable manner. He assembles classic ideas in addition to his own, and relates them to our own lives and era. And he flavors his commentary with beautiful stories, as only he can. The combination is a Seder plate piled high with Yom Tov treats for the mind and heart. As an added plus, Touched by the Seder includes the classic ArtScroll translation and instructions, so that every participant understands what he or she is saying, what to do, and when to do it. And it wouldn't be complete without the introduction by Rabbi Nosson Scherman.
Many very fine Haggadahs are available, but this one is unique. It will "touch" your Seder and every guest at your table. And you'll want to read and enjoy it all through Pesach and even throughout the year.
