Description
 
Ramban, or Nachmanides, is at the front rank of Torah commentators: leader of Spanish Jewry in the twelfth century, representative of the nation in historic debates with the Church fathers of Spain, pioneer in the restoration of Jerusalemís almost extinct Jewish community, and -- most of all, as the author of profound and premier commentaries on the Torah, Talmud, and other works.

Ramban did not write on the Haggadah per se, but in the vast body of his writings, there is much that clarifies the themes of the Haggadah. Would it ever be brought together in the form of a continuous commentary?

It remained for Yosef Israel to do so, and in this volume he does so magnificently.

He has plumbed the entire corpus of the Rambanís writings and extracted everything that pertains to the Haggadah. He does it seamlessly, so that the reader is hardly conscious of the fact that this is an anthology, rather than an original work. What is important is that here, for the first time, Rambanís ideas on the Haggadah are available in one coherent, flowing whole.

More works have been written on the Haggadah than on any other book in our literature -- and for good reason. Every Seder is enriched by the presence of commentary after commentary, insight after insight. Now, thanks to the loving and thorough research of Yosef Israel, Ramban and his ideas move to the front rank of the genre.
