Jewish Library Classic!
Haggadah shel Pesach with Ma'ase Hashem Commentary by Harav Eliezer Ashkenazy. First Edition. Venice, 1583

This work includes explanations of four episodes in the Torah: Story of Bereishis, Story of the Avos, Story of Egypt and Story of the Torah.

This commentary was reprinted many times on the Haggadah and is one of the classic Passover Haggadah commentaries.

The author, Harav Eliezer Ashkenazy Harofeh (Italy, 1513-Cracow, 1586) was the son of Harav Eliyahu Ashekanzy and a prolific author. He was a contemporary of the Beis Yosef, Rema and Maharshal.

Throughout his life, Harav Ashkenazy was the proverbial wandering Jew. He studied first in the yeshivah in Salonika and then served as a dayan in Egypt during of the era of the Radbaz and Rabbi Betzalel Ashkenazy. From there, he immigrated to Italy and then to Prague. Upon returning to Italy, he was appointed Av Beis Din of Posen and eventually Rosh Yeshivah of Cracow.

Venice, 1583. First edition [6]. 197 leaves. Olive green leather binding. Good condition. Rare.
Stefansky Sifrei Yesod #453. Otzar Hahaggados #30.
