Passover Signature Sandwich-please distingush Biblical vs Rabbinical Mitzvoh where does the Rabbinic Mitzvoh (of Bitter Herbs) originate. Hillel? During the 2nd Temple Era? Could you please explain the concept of the Rabbinic Mitzvoh. I think I understand that a Biblical Mitzvoh originates from the Bible. What would a Passover Seder consists of before the Rabbinical Mitzoh(s) were observed. Was there a time when the only Mitzvoh for the Seder Table was Three Matzohs? I love your teachings, Rabbi Kaplan, and I love your sense of humor. Thank you. Reply
