Rabbi Riskin, founding rabbi of the Lincoln Square Synagogue, regards the Haggadah as more than a handbook of liturgy and instructions for conducting a seder; he sees it as a vital and accessible source for understanding some of the fundamental themes of Jewish spirituality. In analyzing the Haggadah from this perspective, he fully explains the religious significance of Passover both as a reenactment of the Jewish past and as a window to the Jewish future. This Haggadah is out-of-the-ordinary in still another sense. It did not start out in a libary or study hall with a pencil and paper in hand. It began as collection of lectures which Rabbi Riskin gave at several model Seders at Lincoln Square Synagogue. The oral rather than literary genesis allows a more personal touch. Arranged as a series of mini-lectures, each one appropriate to its related text, this Haggadah speaks directly to you, the reader. Reading it is very much like attending Rabbi Riskin’s own Seder.Rabbi Shlomo Riskin is the founding rabbi of the Lincoln Square Synagogue in New York City. he is considered one of the foremost spokesmen of modern Orthodox Judaism.
