To understand the journey from slavery to freedom is to understand the story of man reaching out to God and God reaching out to man. It is to understand what it means to escape the confines of the present and to root our existence in the future. It is to understand not merely what freedom is but why it is so essential.
The true freedom of Seder night offers us the freedom to envision a world radically different from our own. It is a vision that has powered every generation and inspired numerous social and political revolutions, up through modern times.
This unique commentary by renowned educator Rabbi Daniel Rowe seeks to unveil the structure of the Haggadah, and in doing so, helps clarify its key themes and core ideas — and helps us experience the fundamental and inspirational journey of Seder night.
