Practice Makes Perfect

It is customary on Shabbos Hagadol to preview the hagadah, by reading from “avadim hayinu” until “mechaper al kol avonoseinu.” We do not find a special directive to prepare in such a strong way anywhere else (While the rishonim say that one should prepare all tefillos so that they should be fluent in one’s mouth, [...]

בלי הכונה חוסר בהמצוה

יש מנהג בשבת הגדול להתכונן לליל הסדר על ידי קריאת ההגדה מ "עבדים היינו" עד "לכפר על כל עונותינו". לא נמצאה הוראה מיוחדת להתכונן בצורה כל כך חזקה בכל מקום אחר (בעוד שהראשונים אומרים כי יש להכין את כל התפילות, "כדי שיהיו שגורים בפיך", זה סוג אחר של הוראה). השאלה ברורה: מדוע הכנה זו הכרחית? [...]

Reading Between The Lines

And Moses did as the LORD commanded him; and the congregation was assembled at the door of the tent of meeting. (Vayikra 8:4) The Netziv asks: Why was it necessary for all of Klal Yisrael to be present for this particular event? While Klal Yisrael was required to be present at other events, that was [...]

מנהג ישראל תורה

 וַיַּעַשׂ מֹשֶׁה, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה ה׳ אֹתוֹ; וַתִּקָּהֵל, הָעֵדָה, אֶל-פֶּתַח, אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. (ויקרא ח:ד)  כאשר משה רבינו משח את אהרן ואת בניו והלביש אותם את בגדי הכהונה, הוא הצטווה להקהיל את כל בני ישראל כדי שיצפו במאורע. שואל הנצי"ב- מדוע היה צורך לאסוף את כל בני ישראל לאירוע של משיחת הכהנים? הרי  אירוע זה היה, לכאורה, [...]

Step one—Step Two

The gemora in Megilla tells us that in a leap year we celebrate Purim in the Adar which is closer to Pesach in order that one geula should be next to the other. Obviously, this isn’t just to bunch them together for convenience. There are many references throughout Chazal connecting Purim to Pesach. Let’s explore [...]
