    A Short Meditation on Ha Lachma Anya

    The Maggid section of the Seder - that is, the story of the Exodus - begins with a seemingly disingenuous invitation, addressed to anyone who is needy, to join the Seder. Why is it there? What is its purpose? Rabbi Scott Kahn investigates this question, and in the process uncovers an important message about the Divine Presence, the secret of Jewish history, and the necessity of unconditional love for every member of the Jewish people.

    Chazal tell us that G-d established a covenant with Israel such that their recital of the thirteen attributes of mercy will always result in divine favor.

Join Rabbi Scott Kahn for a ten minute explanation of the thirteen attributes, as well as Rav Cordovero's practical suggestions of how to implement them in our lives.

    Tisha B'Av Liturgy: Kinah 45 - אלי ציון

    Tisha B'Av Liturgy: Kinah 45 - אלי ציון

    The words of this kinah sound as if there is almost no hope, until we look at the context: it is describing a woman in childbirth. Just as the pain of labor gives birth to the hope of tomorrow, our mourning this Tisha B'Av will hopefully lead to the final Redemption.
