Rabbi Eliezer Melamed is a prominent rabbi in the Israeli Religious Zionist community, and a student of R' Tzvi Yehuda Kook.

Perhaps due to the author's Israeli background, the book is different in content and style to the many English halacha books being published in America these days. Most of the American popular halacha books tend to err heavily on the side of stringency, and usually relegate alternative positions to terse Hebrew footnotes (if they mention them at all), not trusting the American reader to fully understand the issues involved. There is a particular bend toward stringency when it comes to the laws and practices of Passover.

In contrast, this book takes a very reasoned, moderate, common sense approach that respects the reader's intelligence. The halachic issues are always clearly explained, and a moderate approach is usually recommended. I like that Rabbi Melamed presents both the lenient and the strict approaches. He does not discourage the sensible lenient approach. He has surprisingly lenient positions on things like kashering plastic utensils, the use of the plata warming plate, cosmetics, peanuts, kitniyot oils, the shiur of matza, and even dishwashers - just to name a few issues. The reasoning is fully explained, the technical/legal discussions are in the excellent English footnotes, and alternative positions (strict and lenient) are presented fairly as well.

Chometz is a serious prohibition, and Rabbi Melamed treats it with appropriate reverence. But he does not go over the top, especially in dealing with rabbinic prohibitions, remote probabilities, and customs such as kitniyot.

Sephardic customs and halachot are also given prominent attention.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a balanced view of the the laws of Pesach, anyone who wants to observe the many laws of Pesach while also staying sane and having a meaningful holiday experience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Easy to read and comprehensive view of passover laws 20 mai 2014

This is an easy to read and comprehensive explanation of the many rabbinical laws associated with the holiday of Passover developed for the most part from the Torah mandate that no unleavened product may be in the home during the seven day holiday of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread. The book is an English translation of the Hebrew original that sold over 300,000 copies. The author is one of the most popular educators in Israel. He is a rabbi of a Hesder yeshiva, a school that recognizes that Israeli religious Jews are obligated, as are their non-religious brethren, to serve in the Israeli military and aid in defending their country.

The book is composed of sixteen chapters in which Rabbi Melamed mentions the opinions of various rabbis and discusses,
among much else, the meaning of Pesah, matzah, and Seder, the rules concerning the prohibition of unleavened bread, how to get rid of unleavened bread, the practice of searching for unleavened bread, selling unleavened products, why even a drop of an unleavened product renders a food forbidden, can one eat egg matzah, the use of medicines on Pesah that have unleavened ingredients, the meaning of the many practices associated with the reading of the haggadah and the Seder plate, why four cups of wine, and what is the afikoman. His explanations are very enlightening and interesting.

Rabbi Melamed does not take the approach in his book that one has to observe the discussed practice in a particular way and he does not insist that Jews should observe the strictest rabbinical ruling. For example, in regard to eating the afikoman, a piece of matzah at the end of the festive Passover meal, called the Seder, Rabbi Melamed informs readers that the ancient rabbis differed why the matzah is eaten. Some say that the eating of the matzah at the Seder end is the way Jews fulfill the biblical command to eat matzah on the holiday. Others say that the afikoman matzah reminds Jews of the Pascal sacrifice that was mandated by the Torah to be brought in the Temple, and was brought until the Temple was destroyed in 70 CE. All of the ancient rabbis agreed that this matzah must be eaten while reclining to the left side as a sign of relaxing and freedom. However the rabbis differed what one should do if one forgot to lean. Some say the person should eat another matzah while leaning, while others say the person must not eat another matzah, and the rabbi explains both opinions. The rabbi also discusses how much matzah a Jew must consume as the afikoman. He offers a lenient ruling: one can eat the smaller portion, and he explains why.

This is an excellent overview of the complex halachos of Pesach. As an earlier reviewer noted it brings all views, even kulos and supplies detailed sources. I used it as a halacha text for my tenth graders and found it very workable.
In addition, this work as all of Rav Melamed's, will serve as an antidote to one of the many mythologies of chareidi-ism, that hesder yeshivos are inferior in their Torah learning. Rav Melamed is also lucid, impassioned and balanced in his hashkafa works. (Readers with an affinity for the peace process beware, though, the Rav is a firm believer in Greater Israel.)
