This Haggadah is presented in the spirit that the Sages wrote it. It is divided into two parts: the authors (father and son) begin with a long commentary, divided into sections. This is followed by a short commentary that accompanies the Haggadah itself. The reader of the short commentary who wants to learn about the origin and early history of the text will find them in the long commentary on the same passage.
