Hayom Yom: Nissan 15, 1st day of chag ha'matzot (Pesach)

Tuesday Nissan 15, 1st day of chag ha'matzot (Pesach) 5703
Our custom is to use for the maror and the chazeret (on the seder plate) both horseradish and romaine lettuce. Kiddush is said standing. The pronunciation of the first word of the Haggada is Hay lachma... When the b'racha "...on eating maror" is recited, one should have in mind the second portion of maror to be eaten later at koreich (sandwiched between two pieces of matza).
Torah lessons: Chumash: Acharei Mot, Shlishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 77-78.
Tanya: Furthermore, even in (p. 209)...been explained above. (p.211).

At the first seder my father would be brief,1 in order to eat the afikoman before midnight. On the second night, however, he would expound at length; he began the seder before 9 p.m. and ended at about 3 or 4 in the morning, dwelling at length on the explanation of the Haggada.

The Alter Rebbe declared: The matza of the first evening of Pesach is called the Food of Faith; the matza of the second evening is called the Food of Healing. When healing brings faith ("Thank you, G-d, for healing me") then clearly there has been illness. When faith brings healing, there is no illness to start with.
