Description from the publisher: “Their very names inspire awe: Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer of Slutzk and Jerusalem; Rabbi Aharon Kotler of Kletzk and Lakewood; Rabbi Chaim Shmulevitz of Mir and Jerusalem; Rabbi Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky, the Steipler Gaon of Bnai Brak; Rabbi Yaakov Kamenetsky of Torah Vodaath; and Rabbi Moshe Feinstein of Mesivtha Tifereth Jerusalem! Another year, another Haggadah. One often wonders what is left to say -- but no one will ask that question about this monumental anthology. For the first time in English, this volume brings together the ideas and expositions of six of the greatest luminaries of contemporary times, six revered and renowned roshei yeshivah, who, collectively, were the teachers and leaders of tens, even hundreds of thousands of Jews, all over the world. First in ‘Arzei HaLevanon, ’ the Hebrew predecessor of this volume, and now here, their discourses on the Haggadah are collected and set forth with taste and clarity. All of them were Torah geniuses, who saw lessons for today in the miracles of yesterday. To them, the Haggadah and the story of the Exodus were guideposts for life in every era. Their interpretations of the Haggadah are distinguished for depth, incisiveness, pure faith -- and the profound depth that marked their authors as the Torah leaders of three generations. ” With dustjacket.
