About the Author
The Haggadah is more than a book; it is a practical guide to the Passover Seder ceremony. This magnificent collector's edition features illustrations by renowned painter Gerard Garouste and commentary by Rabbi Marc-Alain Ouaknin, who eloquently explains the symbolism and meaning of the text from a philosophical perspective. This luxury volume is accompanied by a softcover, Seder-size edition and includes all of the instructions in both English and Hebrew text necessary to carry out a successful celebration in the traditional atmosphere of the event and invites celebrants to challenge their intelligence, taste, and spirituality.
