Segment 1 of April, 4 2012. It’s crunch time as Pesach is rapidly approaching and we kick off this week’s show with Yishai, being joined by his friend and colleague, Rabbi Shimshon Nadel. Together, they discuss the intensity of not only cleaning one’s home for the holiday but also the importance of taking time to look inside during the holiday. Yishai talks about his recent experience baking matzo and also his personal connection to the baking of unleavened bread along with how the Pesach holiday should be used as a time to deflate oneself and reevaluate. Rabbi Nadel and Yishai talk about how Passover Seder should be rethought and how it should become less of a textual event and more one of true feeling of fire and night. Halachic questions such as how to lean to the left comfortably during the Seder are mentioned and the first segment ends with Yishai talking about Pesach being a pilgrimage holiday and how important it is for the consciousness that Jerusalem is the center of the Jewish universe to exist in the hearts and minds of the Jewish People.Download MP3
