Read excerpt

From the book jacket –

Drawing on the resources of Jewish thought and extensive Jewish sources, Rabbi Safran illuminates every aspect of the Passover festival, giving each facet and detail a meaning both timeless and timely. And since Passover symbolizes the two great themes of exile and redemption, which resonate even more strongly in our time than in generations past, Rabbi Safran in thirty-one masterful essays, provides us as well with a prism through which to view the events of our time.
