Haggadah Touched by Our Story: The Soul of the Seder Through Stories and Reflections

By Rabbi Yechiel Sperohtsh

The Haggadah. It’s our story. Let’s make sure we tell it well.

This year, invite a master story-teller to your seder. Acclaimed teacher, best-selling author, and master story-teller Rabbi Yechiel Spero is back with a brand new haggadah, Touched by Our Story. In this masterful new volume, Rabbi Spero combines wide-ranging, stimulating commentary on the Haggadah and, of course, his trademark true stories. Enlightening, engaging and eye-opening, this is a Haggadah that will ensure a lively, meaningful and enjoyable seder for us, our guests, and — most important of all — our children, the next generation to tell the stories.

 

 

The Generation to Generation Haggadah

By Rabbi Nosson Mullergngh

The Pesach Seder. The one night a year that Jews throughout the world relive and experience the Exodus from Egypt. It is the time when we infuse in ourselves and our children lessons of emunah, faith, and an immense appreciation for the kindness and love bestowed upon us by Hashem.

In this unique Haggadah commentary, Rabbi Nosson Muller, Menahel of Yeshiva Toras Emes in Brooklyn, and renowned and experienced educator, offers us the tools to make the Seder an unforgettable event and an exciting learning experience. With insightful explanations coupled with dozens of inspiring and meaningful stories and parables, Rabbi Muller gives us timely and practical chinuch messages and lessons — for ourselves, and to convey to our children. This haggadah is bound to keep the children — and their parents — engaged and interested throughout the long night.

On seder night every parent becomes a teacher. Here is a master educator to show us how to do it right. The seder lasts for a few hours — The Generation to Generation Haggadah will help us and our children hear its vital message resound throughout the year.

Savory Hamantaschen

Recipe from Fresh and Easy Kosher Cooking by Leah Schapira. Copyright ArtScroll/Mesorah Publications. 

Click here to download a printable version of Savory Hamentashen on The Official ArtScroll Blog

Ingredients:

4 (10-inch circles) frozen malawah dough

2 tbsp honey

3 cloves garlic

1 full tbsp salt

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp apple juice

3 chicken cutlets, cubed

¼ cup red bell pepper, finely diced

oil, for frying

Apricot Dipping Sauce

1 cup apricot jam

2 tbsp mustard

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp honey

Instructions: 

  1. In a medium bowl, combine honey, garlic, salt, soy sauce, and apple juice. Marinate chicken in mixture for a minimum of 30 minutes. Add the diced red pepper.
  2. Remove malawah dough from freezer to begin defrosting.
  3. When dough has slightly defrosted (approximately 10 minute after removing from freezer), use a cookie cutter to cut out 2º-inch circles. Defrost circles for an additional 5 minutes. Using a rolling pin or pressing down with your hands, roll the dough circles slightly until they are 3Ω inches wide.
  4. Place a heaping teaspoonful of chicken mixture into the center of each circle. Pinch the edges together to form a hamentash.
  5. Heat a thin layer of oil in a skillet or frying pan. Add hamentashen to pan, filled side down. Fry over medium-low heat for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through or until golden (the heat needs to be low enough so the chicken is cooked before the dough browns).
  6. To prepare dipping sauce, add all ingredients to a bowl and stir to combine thoroughly.
  7. Serve hamentashen warm with dipping sauce.
