One more thing, in case you haven't found it yet, I also would like to recommend this lecture to everyone:

"This is the Bread of Our Affliction"

Both lectures wonderfully add to each other :-)

You saved our Seder night! Guess what, without you we all would have forgotten this step at the Seder! We all are so blessed to have found this site.
I listened to this lecture three times, and was looking forward to this step at the Seder on Monday to celebrate that we could never sink to the fiftiest level again. At some point the person who led the Seder told us all to make a sandwhich with mazza and marror, and I was thinking...wait a minute...where's my humble charoset? Since I had travelled and this wasn't even "my own" community, I waited for someone to say something, but when noone did, I screamed across the tables: "Where's the humble charoset?" He was looking at me, then looking in his booklet, asking me: "Where did you find this?" I replied: "I know it!" Then he said: "You're right....My apologies everyone, we all take the bitter herbs now and dip them into the charoset..." Baruch HaShem I found this site. Without Chabad, the Community would have missed this step of the Seder. G-d bless you all! Reply

seder excellent learning for holiday Reply

This class analyzes an aspect of the weekly Torah portion or upcoming holiday. While providing a basic understanding of the subject matter, the lesson delves into its deeper and more complex dimensions with emphasis on the spiritual relevance to our daily lives. Inspiration for both the novice and advanced student.
