Alshich on the Haggadah

Alshich on the Haggadah

OVERVIEW The Alshich did not write a specific commentary on the Haggadah; however, in his vast body of writings, he explains many of its ideas and themes. In this adaptation, we study the Haggadah as the Alshich understood it. Utilizing his unique method of asking stimulating questions on which he focuses his commentary, the Alshich combines the classic teachings of the Sages with his own insights and often presents a truly original approach to the questions posed.

Questions such as:

  • How can we integrate the hidden message of the order of the Seder into our daily living?
  • Why does the Seder experience begin with an invitation to strangers to join us at our meal?
  • What is the thread that connects all the questions of the four sons?
  • Why does the Haggadah place such emphasis on Rabbi Yehudah’s three-word acronym of the Ten Plagues דְּצַ״ךְ עֲדַ״שׁ בְּאַחַ״ב?

These are but a small sample of the queries and comments addressed in this fascinating commentary.

What Other People Think About This Book

Please find below some reviews about our books:

"Having read a substantial portion of the book, I can see how much effort has been put into it. The authors have done a great job of condensing the vast material that the Alshich has written on each sedra without compromising on the Alshich’s overall approach to a particular piece. These books will open the reader's eyes to an original approach on each sedra, one which I have found appealing and enjoyable to read." Jeremy Phillips, Israel.

"I have been studying the Alshich on the weekly Parsha for over 30 years. This new book has allowed me to gain greater access and clarity to a commentary that really should be learnt by more people. In it one finds questions that other commentators have not commented on and often an approach that only he develops. I personally think that if you want a book that is rigorous and stimulating in the approach to the weekly Parsha, this is it." Neville Romer, London

"I have followed the Alshich series since its inception and have always found these books enlightening to read. The way he weaves together a range of ideas, culled and based on earlier sources, to form a unified approach  to his explanations is quite unique. I look forward to the publication of the next book in the series." Michael Singer, Australia.
