As the final hours of Passover slip away, Jews in every part of the world celebrate the Feast of Moshiach (Moshiach’s Seudah in Yiddish), a custom of the Baal Shem Tov and his students. This rich and multifaceted custom was vigorously encouraged by the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, who would personally expound each year at great length about the messianic spark inside each of us and how tapping into our unlimited potential to do but one more act of goodness holds the potential of global transformation.

Here’s a suggested program (PDF), comprising four readings, each of which may be followed by a cup of wine.

What You Will Need to Prepare in Advance

  • Wine glasses and enough wine or grape juice for each participant to drink four cups.
  • Matzah (ideally shmurah matzah) and kosher for Passover refreshments.
  • Reading material (such as this PDF) printed before the onset of the holiday.
  • (Since it is customary to sing the Hopp Cossack melody at this meal, you may want to practice it or even print up the sheet music here in advance as well.)
