New: The Reb Moshe Haggadah:
Comments,rulings and minhagim of Hagaon Reb Moshe Feinstein – The Aryeh Family Edition
Compiled by Rabbi Shalom Meir Wallach – Translated by Malky Heimowitz
The Reb Moshe Haggadah beautifully captures the many facets of the gaon and posek hador: his brilliance in piskei halachah and Gemara; his insights and deep understanding of Torah hashkafah; his incredible diligence and his extraordinary compassion.
Much of the commentary is taken from Reb Moshe’s prolific writings on halachah, Chumash, and Talmud. Stories about Reb Moshe from dozens of other sources paint an inspiring and breathtaking portrait of a caring and empathetic leader who had a profound understanding and endless love for the Jews he led for so many decades.
When we read about the “Four Sons” we will hear Reb Moshe share his teachings on chinuch, child-rearing and Torah education. From a Shabbos HaGadol lecture given by Reb Moshe in 1922, we listen to him compare the merciless Communist regime where he lived to Pharaoh’s Egypt. From the Ten Plagues Reb Moshe offers us a new understanding of the power of free choice; from the Splitting of the Sea he points out a vital lesson in strengthening our faith.
We are taught that the voices of the great Torah scholars are not stilled even after their passing, and in these pages we can clearly hear the voice of the beloved Torah leader, HaGaon Reb Moshe Feinstein zt”l.

This phenomenal yet easy side dish recipe is great for Passover – and year round!
With their crispy golden crust and a creamy whipped center flecked with fresh scallions, these Garlicky Potato Mounds are an elevated take on classic comfort food. Serve two mounds per plate for an elegant presentation.
pareve | passover | gluten-free | freezes well | yields 10-12 mounds
4-5 medium potatoes, (Idaho or Yukon Gold), peeled and cut into chunks
4-5 cloves garlic
1/2 cup (approximately) vegetable broth
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 scallions, thinly sliced
- In a large saucepan, combine potatoes and garlic. Add enough lightly salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat; drain well.
- Return potatoes and garlic to saucepan and place back on the heat for 1-2 minutes to evaporate any excess moisture. Remove from heat.
- Mash potatoes and garlic until smooth. Gradually blend in broth, oil, salt, and pepper. Whip until light and creamy. Stir in scallions.
- Line a rimmed baking with parchment paper.
- Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop rounded mounds of potato mixture onto prepared baking sheet. (Can be made in advance up to this point.)
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, until crusty.
- Dry, mealy potatoes have high starch content and are perfect for baked or mashed potatoes. Waxy potatoes have lower starch content and are best for boiling, scalloped potatoes, or potato salad.
- If you don’t know which type of potato you have, put it in a brine of 2 Tbsp salt dissolved in 1½ cups cold water. Mealy potatoes will sink; waxy ones will float.
- If your potatoes are tinged with green, cut off and discard any green parts. The green layer under the skin is called solanin and is poisonous.
