HaRav HaGaon R' Avraham Yaakov HaKohen Pam, zt"l, over a period spanning more than six decades, served as rebbi and moreh derech (life-guide) not only for Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, but for all of Klal Yisrael. Through the weekly talks he delivered in the yeshiva, and through countless public addresses, Rav Pam molded his students and elevated his audiences. Rav Pam would speak in a soft tone, with a wonderful sweetness of expression, which endeared him to his listeners. His words, however, were aflame with the passion of his ahavas Hashem(Love of Hashem) andahavas haTorah. Strong and passionate, yet gentle and sweet, for sixty years and more, Rav Pam's voice transmitted the pure mesorah of the D'var Hashem to the Klal Yisrael.
With the publication six years ago of the Hebrew commentary Mareh Kohen Haggadah, the public was reintroduced to this beloved voice. Culled from Rav Pam's shiurim and from his private notes, the commentary contained a wide selection of divrei Torah and hashkafah insights, arranged according to the topics and text of the Haggadah. This collection addressed a broad range of topics, such as Rav Pam's outlook on world events, his advice to individuals, the responsibilities of the Torah community, and divrei chizuk to help a person improve in his avodas Hashem.
We are proud to present this English edition of the Mareh Kohen Haggadah, making this treasure trove of Torah thought available to the English-speaking public. The English edition contains the same wide range of content as the Hebrew edition, and includes, as well, an extensive index of the various topics discussed therein. English readers now have the opportunity to "hear" the original Torah and mussar of Rav Pam, and to be uplifted by his unique "voice."
