Advance Praise for Wellsprings of Freedom:
"WELLSPRINGS OF FREEDOM is an invaluable resource that will enrich the Seder immeasurably for those who use it. Rabbi Aigen has produced an important work, and a welcome new link in the rich chain of Passover Haggadahs."
"A triumph of scholarship and spirit; Wellsprings of Freedom will enliven and inform our family Seders. This Haggadah takes us on the familiar journey from slavery to freedom, but with fresh eyes and a thoroughly modern sensibility. Traditional and innovative, personal and universal, Rabbi Ron Aigen has given us a text that educates and inspires."
"This new edition of the Haggadah is a thoughtfully and creatively arranged version of the traditional text. It is presented in a highly accessible format, ready for use at a family or community Seder. Rabbi Aigen has drawn richly from the many Hasidic commentaries, greatly enriching the spiritual depth of the text presented, far beyond what is found in most modern Haggadahs."
"Dayyenu! If Ron Aigen had created an artistically beautiful and graphically elegant Haggadah, that would be enough. If he had laid it out with great respect for the leader - clear, sophisticated instructions on how to proceed, that would be enough. If he had included wonderful discussion questions that appeal to a wide variety of people, that would be enough. But, in addition, he has included the most interesting, powerful interpretations of the text from deeply spiritual writings of the great classical Hasidic masters to light up the whole Seder. Dayyenu! And Hallelujah!"
"Wellsprings of Freedom is a delight to the eyes, the heart, the mind and the soul. People, using this beautiful work at their Seder, will have the shared experience of a current day Exodus."
"This new Haggadah is a wonderful mix of traditional and innovative insights into the story of Passover."
