Description

The well-known story of the five sages in Bnei Brak is unattested anywhere else in Rabbinic literature; there is, however, another story about a Seder in that generation, told in the Tosefta. Rabban Gamliel and the elders stayed up all night studying the laws of the Korban Pesach. What is the essential difference between these two stories - and why did the "Bnei Brak" story make it into the Haggadah? Along the way we also explore the meaning of the phrase "I am like a man of seventy years" which may be alluding to a subtextual motif of the Bnei Brak Seder - which eventually became the Seder of Am Yisrael
