The Haggada is certainly not a text lacking in commentaries, but award-winning author and educator Dr. Erica Brown nevertheless finds a fresh and original take. Her approach engages readers not only intellectually but emotionally, so readers will personally experience the feeling of redemption. SEDER TALK: THE CONVERSATIONAL HAGGADA features two books in one: an erudite, sensitive commentary on the Haggada text with conversation points, as well as eight short essays for each day of the holiday. In her signature educational style, Dr. Brown includes art and poetry to engage the reader in the sensory emotions of Seder night in addition to thought-provoking questions and life-homework exercises for greater mindfulness, intention, and inner freedom. SEDER TALK introduces ideas ranging from the Vilna Gaon, Rav Kook, and the Sfat Emet, to Stephen King, the Harvard Business Review, and Zingerman’s Guide to Giving Great Service, creating a springboard for fascinating conversation for all ages.
