Description

Seder Preparation: The Festival of Pesach was instituted to commemorate the Exodus from Egypt and thank Hashem for freeing us from bondage. But why, to begin with, did Hashem ordain that we be exiled and enslaved? Was it perhaps a punishment for sin, or was it, alternatively, a means to inculcate values and instill faith? Was there, in fact, a sin that was egregious enough to warrant such a punishment? Or was there a lesson which could not have been learned without so much suffering? This Torahcast, brought to you by ALHATORAH.ORG, featuring Neima Novetsky, explores these questions and more.
