OlamiResources.com is happy to present a collection of four central questions surrounding Pesach and the Seder, illustrated by engaging parables by Rabbi Tzvi Moshe Schultz. The stories are action-driven, self-explanatory, and user friendly, for Pesach Seder preparations – either by busy rabbis, or to share with students for their DIY Seders. The questions and parables address:
- Why is the Seder filled with details?
- How can we celebrate the Seder, that culminates in liberation, at times of difficult galus?
- In the Az Yashir we read on the Seventh Day of Pesach, the Torah states, Hashem is “too awesome to praise.” Rashi explains that since G-d is so great, we might not praise Him enough, and would in fact be considered an insult. How can praise be considered to be an affront?
- Dayeinu – How can anything less than all that G-d has done for us be considered sufficient?
Each mashal is preceded by a question and concludes with the take-away lesson.
