It seemed to be happening in sickening slow motion, yet mockingly too fast for action. My body rocked in horror; my eyes bulged. The crash was ear-piercing; metal clashing against metal, shattering glass, and screeching rubber wheels. The deafening noise echoed upward, curling above the tree-tops with the rising plume of ashy smoke.
And then—nothing. A strange, eerie silence filled the night air.

never seemed to turn out quite right. It took Jeremy a
whole year of adventures to discover some important
things about himself and the people he lived with.
And if you enjoy reading about Jeremy, you’ll love
reading about his younger sister, Heddy, in her
very own book called Hello Heddy Levi!

It is a Haggadah to illuminate a Seder, to infuse the ancient text with fresh discoveries and insights..."

What is the purpose of the obligation for every Jew to view himself as if he personally left Mitzrayim?
Is the Korban Pesach an individual offering or a communal one?
Why is the declaration, “Next year in Yerushalayim,” part of the Seder night?
In this unique work, Rav Dovid Hofstedter, Nasi of the internationally acclaimed Dirshu Torah organization, addresses these questions and so many others. Deep insights into the moadim of Pesach and Shavuos; as well as Sefiras Ha’omer, the Three Weeks, Tishah B’Av, Rosh Chodesh and the weekly “holiday” of Shabbos are analyzed. Every maamar in Dorash Dovid begins with several questions, then develops an in-depth approach, opening new vistas that enable one to truly grasp the messages that the Torah and our Sages impart.
Where in the hagaddah do we find the full answer to the Four Questions? Why do we eat a full meal right in the middle of reciting Hallel? What is the meaning of the word "Charoses"? How many sacrifices did the kohanim slaughter per minute during the bringing of the korban Pesach? What was the weather like during Krias Yam Suf? Pesach heralds a time of preparation- cleaning, scrubbing and cooking. Yet of greater importance is the spiritual preparation for the holiday, and the pivotal Seder night. For it is this holiday that establishes the core of our relationship with G-d. By bringing us out of Egypt and punishing the nation that had enslaved us, G-d demonstrated that we are His chosen children.Every father is obligated to teach this to his children, to impart these basics of our faith on the night of the Seder. "You shall relate in the ears of your child... that I made a mockery of Egypt and My miraculous signs that I placed among them, and you shall know that I am Hashem" (Shemos 10:2). It is our obligation to teach our children the lessons learned from the Egyptians' punishments. Not only that Hashem punishes the wicked who mistreat His people- through the ten plagues, G-d demonstrated His dominion and sole control over the entire world.This book is designed to prepare the reader for this vital task. Step by step, it will take you through the Seder night, elaborate on the ten makkos, describe the suffering of our ancestors in Egypt, and rejoice in their ultimate redemption at the splitting of the sea. Complete with pictures that bring each part of the Seder to life, and a fascinating account of the bringing of the korban Pesach, it is the ultimate spiritual preparation for the Seder.
