  • The Holistic Haggadah

    Michael Kagan

    13 Review(s)

    Besides the ritual question - "How is this night different from all other nights?" - the most common question asked at the Seder table is probably, "When is the food coming?" The Holistic Haggadah asks deeper questions: "How are you going to be different this night? How are you prepared to let this night change you?"
    The Holistic Haggadah is a fascinating guide to the inner journey that the Passover Seder evening offers us. It is a daring commentary that challenges each of us to go down into our self-imposed Egypt and face our attachments and the false gods that confine us. It then beckons us forth to true freedom and a more meaningful relationship between ourselves and God.
    This commentary incorporates a holistic approach to Judaism, which activates the four worlds of the individual: the world of action, the world of emotion, the world of intellect and the world of spirit. It weaves a beautiful tapestry, illuminating the treasures available to us within Passover and the yearly festival cycle.
    It is the hope that this Haggadah will find a place in the hearts of all those whose souls, regardless of denomination, yearn for greater depths and higher vistas, and will provide spiritual sustenance not only on Passover but the entire year.
    The Holistic Haggadah presents a contemporary spiritual commentary on the meaning of freedom and its relationship to serving God.
    Excerpts from The Holistic Haggadah
    "The Alienated Child is angry. With compassion and understanding must come the answer. Help the child soften. Explain that a rejection of the Divine is a rejection of Self; that giving up leads to self-condemnation in the crucible of enslavement; that there are many questions but not necessarily corresponding answers. The entire evening, in fact, can be seen as being dedicated to this dejected and rejecting child."
    "Hametz is bread - soft, delicious bread. It consists mainly of empty space produced by a gas that does not sustain human life. Its great volume is an illusion of its true essence. Hametz is symbolic of our inflated, swollen egos - mostly hot air."
    "Matzah is unleavened bread produced by mixing flour and water, but fermentation is prevented by immediate baking. Matzah is what it appears to be - the essence. It is uninflated. It may not be as soft and as tasty as hametz but it doesn't need those facades to be what it is. It represents being. It represents being just you, just who you are - with your ego, but an uninflated ego. For after all, the ego is not bad, as it is a necessary part of the interface between the physical world and the spiritual world."

  • Mitzrayim, Midrash and Myth

    Yisroel Cohen

    Said God: “What do I still need to do to inform Pharaoh of one more plague?” Immediately God as it were plunged into the palace of Pharaoh for the sake of Moshe who had said [to Pharaoh] “I will not continue to see you,” so that he should not appear to be untruthful. (Shemot Rabba Bo 18§1)

    And in Egypt from where did God reveal himself? R Brechiah in the name of R Helbo said from within the palace of Pharaoh

    One of ancient Egypt’s oldest pictorial names for a pharaoh was the Horus name Serekh. The crest contained the image of a palace underneath the name of the pharaohs. Above was a figure of the falcon god Horus, who was thought to be the patron of the pharaoh, its earthly reincarnation. In these midrashim God is described as having plunged into or from the palace of Pharaoh for Moshe’s sake.

    Can we connect the dots? Or is it purely a coincidence?

    The Torah records the events that took place in a bygone Egypt. Their ancient gods and fallacious ways are the subject of many verses. Chazal (Rabbinic tradition) delved past the written word and brought forth a new light on an ancient era. Let us revisit the pinnacle moments when God kviyachol and Moshe were in Pharaoh’s palace and deeply enhance our understanding of the extent that the Jewish people were redeemed – from Egyptian mythology.
