On Leil haseder we focus on many things that are all aspects of the story of Yetziat Mitzrayim. One of the things we say and do is "Pesach Matzah and Maror", and we give explanations for each one of these things. The explanation given for matzah is "Al shum shelo hispik b'tzeikam shel avoteinu l'hachmitz" -- the dough of our ancestors didn't have enough time to rise before we rushed out of Mitzrayim.
However, if we look carefully at the story of Yetziat Mitzrayim, this doesn't seem to make sense!
Heritage is a program available for Yeshiva and Seminary students to travel to Poland to learn about our Heritage and the Holocaust first hand. Please enjoy this Journal of pictures and experiences from MMY girls while on the program.
