The Haggadah is perhaps one of our most familiar Jewish texts, read around the table at seders the world over. But at the same time the Haggadah can be difficult to understand. Please join us as we examine three key passages from the Haggadah, and leave with something to say about each one at your seder.

1. HaLachma (This is the Bread of Affliction)
What does matzah really symbolize? Do we really mean it when we say, “let all who are hungry come in and eat?” And why does the seder begin with a passage in Aramaic?
