question why is it in this order Reply

Rabbi Yossi Grossbaum, for Folsom, CA June 21, 2017
in response to Anonymous:

All the steps are things that need to be done on the Seder night. Kaddeish is the beginning of the seder, we pronounce the day holy.
Urchatz (and Karpas) is especially done at the seder to pique the interest of the children. We therefore do it early on, while the children are still awake.
Yachatz gives us a broken matzah to have at the table while saying the hagadah so as to be saying it over a "poor man's bread."
Magid is before we eat the matzah for the same reason as yachatz - so that the hagadah is said over the broken Matzah.
Rachtza/Motzi Matzah/Maror/Koreich/Shulchan Areich - All follow the logical order
Tzafun - The Afikoman, final part of the meal.
Beirach - the blessing after the meal.
Hallel /Nirtza - Hallel was said with the Passover sacrifice and is therefore said soon after eating the Afikoman which commemorates the sacrifice. Reply

It is the 'belonging' I wish for. Lovely music.
I could feel its message.
I don't need to understand all the words.
You belong . Reply

I tried the link to this song and the site said it's out of stock. Is there anyone who knows the CD title and artist? Reply

The Seder Just finding out about my ancestory, found out my surname is of Jewish origin. Trying to understand about what is missing. Music so different. Reply

The Seder I am Catholic, but Jewish in my heart :) I was talking to a Jewish friend tonight about the Seder meal he is enjoying this year with his family. I wish I could learn much, much more about how the Jewish faith contributed to my embracing of the Catholic faith. I love the songs and the stories and I love to read the Old Testament.

I am a Methodist but I direct a senior citizen community choir and if we include a Christian song or two in April, I wanted to mention that our Jewish friends are observing the Passover, so I needed to know more about it. The first song with the steps is catchy and would be an excellent way for your youngsters to learn them, I feel sure since everything seems easier with music--even our a,b,cs. We won't be trying to sing the song, however because no one would get the pronunciation correct. Wishing you a happy & blessed Passover as I will celebrate Easter. Reply
