Class description

Hello Everyone,

If  someone would ask me what are the mitzvot that I perform at  ליל הסדר I would mention reciting the Hagadah, eating  מצה ומרור and drinking the four cups of grape juice ( I really do not enjoy wine at all). I probably would not mention  ברכת המזון . But  ברכת המזון is a מצוה דאורייתא and ought not to be forgotten. However,  since we say ברכת המזון every day we probably, and unfortunately, take it for granted.

So to fix this sad situation I will try to say a little about  ברכת המזון so that we will appreciate a bit more. And not only at  ליל הסדר but every day as well.

Wishing you all  חג כשר ושמח
