Description

Should the Pesach Seder meal of Shulchan Orech be the sleepy, post-Maggid afterthought it becomes at many Sedarim? Or should we really speed up Maggid and use Shulchan Orech as the main opportunity for discussing yetziat Mitzrayim? Or should we use everything before Shulchan Orech for our elevation, so that the meal becomes the apex of our Seder, the korban chagigah paving the way for the last part of the korban pesach/afikoman? Arguments from halachah and practicality.
