These teachings focus on the Passover Haggadah. They feature an in-depth study of the actual text, drawing on a wide range of classic and contemporary commentaries.
Haggadah Shel Pesach: all about how the Second Cup of Wine flows into the Handwashing Cup ~ hence the euphemism “KNIGHT OF CUPS”
The precise Order of the Seder Night’s formal rituals and conventions convey much about the mechanism of the Holiday obligations and deeper meanings of its observances.
An interesting example of this can be seen in the fact that the Seder’s Telling part (Magid) ends on a Cup of Wine and the Edible part begins with a Cup of Water.
We’ll discover just how and why the Telling (Part One) of the Night’s Order must conclude by drinking a Cup of Wine, and why it requires a New Blessing.
Then we’ll focus on initiating the Edible (Part Two) of the Seder. Here too a Second Cup is required. Of course here nothing is drunk, but rather its another Handwashing with a Cup of Water.
In the instructive Text Messaging subtleties, we can find insight into the unique nature and jurisprudence of these unique Passover Holiday Observances!
