Leading The Passover Journey: The Seder's Meaning Revealed, The Haggadah's Story Retold
The Passover seder is the most celebrated event in the Jewish calendar. But often the true meaning of this celebration is lost amid the many rituals and customs of the night and the long complex text of the Passover Haggadah. In this intriguing and enlightening exploration of the Passover Seder, Rabbi Laufer uncovers the hidden meaning of the Seder's rituals and customs and brings an original, accessible yet scholarly perspective to understanding the Haggadah text. Unlike other books on the Seder which offer only fragmentary insights about this or that item of the Seder or this or that phrase in the Passover Haggadah, Leading the Passover Journey reveals the unifying theory connecting the fifteen pieces of the Seder and our own experiencing of the Passover story. It turns out that the order of the Seder is crucial to reliving and re-experiencing the transformative moments of the Jewish People's journey from slavery to freedom. Leading the Passover Journey was written for anyone who plans to participate in, contribute to, or lead a Passover Seder. Whether an average layperson or an already well-educated scholar, the reader of this book will come away with a deeper understanding and a more passionate appreciation of the Passover Seder experience. Leading the Passover Journey will transform one's family and friends from reluctant bystanders at the Passover Seder who repeatedly ask: "When are we going to eat already?" to enthusiastic, knowledgeable participants in our people's journey toward redemption.
