The Sages and their Seder Stories: From B’nei Brak to Lod and Back

Click here for sources

This year's Shabbat HaGadol discourse will explore one of the most peculiar passages in the haggadah; the story of the Sages gathering in Bnei Brak. Why does the Seder interrupt its story of the exodus with this story of a Seder?

Join us as we examine the significance of this story by comparing and contrasting it with a parallel story in the Tosefta. Together we will uncover the profound educational, historical, halakhic, and theological messages embedded within these parallel tales. The entire YIOZ community is invited to participate in this Pre-Pesach, in-depth, community learning opportunity sure to enhance your Seder experience.
