The Hidden Meaning of the Seder
The Passover Seder is the most brilliant curriculum ever devised; the Rabbis had a revolutionary thought that saved our religion from extinction. We will look at the key to the hidden meaning of the Seder, which lies at the beginning, in a small piece of Matzah that has a lot of different meanings to us as Jews (Ha Lachma Anya and the hidden Afikoman), and at the end, with the poem (Hasal Siddur Pesach) that concludes the Seder.
