A Lot to Talk About!
On the first two nights of Passover, the 14th and 15th of Nissan (April 19th and 20th), we will read the Haggadah. Thus we may fulfill the commandment, "And you shall tell your son (children) on that day, saying 'It is because of this that G-d did for me when I went out from Egypt.'" (Exodus 13:8) Here are some Haggadah fun facts.
- Moshe Rabbeinu's name is not mentioned in the Haggadah. According to our sages, that's because he wrote it to teach his family who lived in Midian all about the Exodus. Because he was so humble, Moshe didn't mention himself!
- The Haggadah has 15 sections. This is similar to the 15 steps leading up to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Each section takes you higher and higher!
- The Haggadah begins with thanks and praises to G-d for taking us out of Egypt. It ends by expressing confidence that G-d will take us out of Exile with Moshiach, speedily in our days!
Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
