This illustrated Haggadah features a Yiddish introductory note taken from Benzion Alfes' "Ma'aseh Alfes". Alfes was a prominent Yiddish and Hebrew writer who was perhaps best known for his literary works that combined religiosity with the popular literary style of the day. This work was not only enormously successful (published in twelve editions) , it also spawned a wave of subsequent "Ma'aseh Alfes"-style commentaries that would appear in a variety of liturgical texts.
