One Pesach, Reb Chayim Avraham (the Alter Rebbe's son) went to his brother (the Mitteler Rebbe) to wish him gut yom-tov. Reb Chayim Avraham related on that occasion that the Alter Rebbe had said, "On Pesach one does not offer a guest food and drink, but the guest may help himself."1

Compiled and arranged by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, in 5703 (1943) from the talks and letters of the sixth Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, of righteous memory.


Since many people have personal stringencies on Pesach they decline to eat outside their own homes. Offering food might prove awkward or embarrassing.
