Parshas Tzav/ Shabbos Hagadol / Pesach
There is so much to say as we head toward Pesach. I'd like to share with you an idea I saw from Rav Dessler which gave me a new appreciation for the Haggadah. Rav Dessler points out the number of ways in which the author of the Haggadah structured the Haggadah to reach all types of personalities. For example:
Q and A- “Ma nishtana”
Motivation - we do things differently so children will ask
Concrete Illustrations- matzo, maror, seder plate
Imaginative Suggestions “ imagine as if you yourself went out”
Breaking things down to small components: “dayeinu”
Putting things together: "al achas kama vkama", where we add up the pieces of dayeinu.
It is so important that every Jew, no matter what his background or personality feel that he belongs. He/She does belong, and our Torah and its rich heritage is accessible.
I wish everyone an enjoyable and uplifting Pesach!
Have a wonderful Shabbos!
