Yet the Chasam Sofer brings from earlier sources that when [...]

Words – Kosher for Pe-Sach

The Metzora must meet the Kohen, who then appraises his situation, and passes judgement if he is tahor or tamei. The words “tahor” or “tamei” uttered by the Kohen is what actually confers on the Metzora the tahor or tuma status. The Tiferes Shlomo explains that a person who uses his words to learn Torah [...]

The Question on the Question

One of the highlights of the Pesach Seder is the section on the four sons. In it, the wise son asks, “What are these testimonies (eidus)?” Rav Shimshon Refael Hirsch, in his masterpiece Chorev, explains in detail that “eidus” are commandments that come to show an idea that is central to our belief. Therefore, one [...]

השאלה על השאלה

אחד מדגשי סדר הפסח הוא הקטע של ארבע בנים. בו שואל הבן החכם, "מה העדות והחקים...?" הרב שמשון רפאל הירש, בספרו המופת "חורב", מסביר בפירוט ש"עדות "הן מצוות שבקיומן מייצגות רעיון מרכזי לאמונתנו. לכן, אפשר לשאול, מה הבן החכם בעצם שואל? האם לא ברור שהוא כבר מבין שהמצוות האלו מתייחסות ליציאת מצרים? מגיד מתחיל במה [...]
