Stealing the Afikoman, Making the Seder Fun & Other Educational Methods to Keep our Children at the Seder and "On the Derech" of Torah and Religion
- 49 min 46 sec
An innocent line in the gemara about "grabbing matzot at the Seder so children will stay awake" is open to 5 totally different explanations in the rishonim, where each one sees it as a springboard for his personal educational theory. Each of these chinuchi and psychological approaches will hopefully, not only keep our children at the seder, but also "on the derech" of Torah and Mitzvot, to stay religious for the rest of their lives. In addition to the Talmudic analysis, the she'ur includes humorous anecdotes and personal experiences, which were originally delivered at a Shabbat HaGadol Drasha.
