Insights for the Younger Tzadikim
Works Miracles and We Remember
is the Parashah that tells the story of the Exodus from
Mitzrayim (Egypt). What
can we most learn from this?
We can learn about Pesach and the Seder.
After all, this is where the Seder comes from.
is what the Torah says:
14. This day shall become a remembrance for you and
you shall celebrate it as a festival for Hashem; for your
generations, as an eternal decree shall you celebrate it:
15. For a seven-day period shall you eat matzos, but
on the previous day you shall nullify the leaven from your
homes; for anyone who eats leavened food -- that soul shall
be cut off from Israel, from the first day to the seventh
16. On the first day shall be a holy convocation and
on the seventh day shall be a holy convocation for you, no
work may be done on them, except for what must be eaten for
any person -- only that may be done for you:
17. You shall safeguard the matzos, for on this very
day I will have taken your legions out of the land of Egypt;
you shall observe this day for your generations as an
18. On the first day, on the fourteenth day of the
month in the evening shall you eat matzos, until the
twenty-first day of the month in the evening:
19. For seven days, leaven may not be found in your
houses, for anyone who eats leavening -- that soul shall be
cut off from the assembly of Israel, whether a convert or a
native of the land:
20. You shall not eat any leavening; in all your
dwellings shall you eat matzos:
is a great deal that we can learn from this.
Most important is that we, as Jews, have been
carrying on this tradition, remembering God's miracles, for
over 3,000 years. Even
more important, very little has changed in how we remember.
For all that time, we have cleaned our homes and
gotten rid of all the leaven.
For all that time, we have been telling the story
through the Seder. For
all that time, we have been keeping this commandment of God. Perhaps this year, when you listen to the Seder, you can
think of this idea. That
for over 3,000 years, the Children of Yisrael (you and me)
have been thanking God for His miracles by telling, and in
some ways reliving, the story of those miracles.
