The series on the Passover Haggadah features either an in-depth study of the actual ancient text, and its formal instructional accompaniment. The lessons are primarily based on the elucidation authored by the Rebbe, and invariably draw on a wide range of classic and contemporary commentary.

This presentation continues the study-series on Seder Handbook with a specific focus on “Matzo,” step eight of the fifteen that comprise the Pesach Seder’s Order.

Episode #39 entitled, MATZO TIME: THE DINNER DATE! opens our analysis of the big-ticket item on the Seder menu. Is it about the sacred consumption of a Unique Mitzva Food, or is this a Passover variation of the typical Holiday Meal Mandate?

Having clarified the order of Brachot that are, and aren’t, recited in this new Episode we move onto the action that follows, first, and foremost addressing its origin of obligation.

To get to the crux of the matter, we delve into many sources and subtleties to piece together several compelling theories about what makes eating Matzo on this most magical of nights so unique and special!

This class is the 39th Episode in an ongoing study series on the Haggadah (formal Handbook) of the Passover Seder.
