1. Pesach Day 1: Secure Matzah vs. Insecure Matzah
Are you insecure? Shmura (secure) Matzah teaches us the source of true security and how to become a more secure person. The secret was discovered by one of the world’s premier chefs, Dan Barber, during an expedition to a Shmura Matzah wheat field in Upstate New York.
2. Pesach Day 2: This Is A Story About Stories
We make a blessing on virtually every step in the Seder (as we do on every mitzvah): Kiddush, washing, drinking the four cups, eating the matzah and maror, Hallel, etc. Why then don’t we make a blessing on Maggid — on telling the story, which is the bulk of the Haggadah? We find the answer, you guessed it, in a story.
3. Pesach Day 7: Does The Sea Split For Sinners?
Is there hope for someone who has had a setback and failed? The parting of the sea, and a surprising fact about Dathan and Aviram, Israel’s archetypal troublemakers, teaches us invaluable lessons how the “sea” can “part” and the impossible be achieved even for those that have lost hope.
4. Pesach Day 8: Do You Ever Finish Last?
Do you ever feel like you’re the last at something? The last to finish a race or complete a project? Well, the last day of Passover has some news for you: not only is last not the least, last might actually be the most! A relay race captures the power of the last sprinter — the one who crosses the finish line.
