Review: Rabbi Avi Weiss

Dr. Marvin A. Chinitz’s The Chinitz Zion Haggadah is unique amongst the plethora of English commentaries as it masterfully focuses on the miracle of the establishment and flourishing of the State of Israel. While the Haggadah text primarily deals with leaving Egypt, Dr. Chinitz beautifully illustrates that entry into Israel is of equal import. Thus, Passover is not only a memory of “freedom from” but the living lesson of “freedom to.” The Chinitz Zion Haggadah will intellectually and emotionally uplift the serious student and inspire readers to protect and contribute to Israel’s aspirational mission of being a light to the world.
