Why do you suppose the Rabbis titled the Passover night ritual a seder? Do you know that the word seder means order? Why commemorate a miraculous, beyond natural order event with an “order”?
Join me as we take a deeper look at the Seder; uncovering topics such as the Jews matzah not rising, the birth of the Jewish nation and the miraculous ‘order’ of our world.
Wishing everyone a happy kosher and healthy Pesach!
