April 6, 2020 | Meir Soloveichik
About the author: Meir Soloveichik is the rabbi of Congregation Shearith Israel in New York and director of the Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought at Yeshiva University.

Besides being one of the most beloved of all Jewish texts, argues Meir Soloveichik, the Haggadah is also a foundational work of Jewish political philosophy. He explains why this is so—and much else about this deceptively simple work—in an eight-part audio course. Listen to the first lecture here, and click on the link below for the entire series.
