One of the greatest Talmudic Titans of yesteryear wrote to his children who were planning to publish his responsa and novelae that they should choose the appropriate paper and dark ink so that the reader would find the learning to be very inviting. When I perused The Simply Jewish Haggadah by Rabbi Reuven Epstein shlita, I found that everything about it was inviting – to the extent that the guest would feel so comfortable that he wouldn’t want to leave. This is a wonderful piece of work and one must say to the author, “yasher koach”- more power to you.

Whether you are a novice or have been attending Passover Seders for many years, The Simply Jewish Haggadah will help you and your family have a more meaningful and authentic Seder. The Simply Jewish Haggadah is a wonderful guide, leading you through the Seder, telling you what you are supposed to do, when you are supposed to do it, and most importantly, why we perform the various rituals. The explanations, commentary and inspiring stories, (especially the ones from Hasidic Tales of the Holocaust), will have you thinking about the true message of Passover long after the holiday ends.
