Haggadah Slam

Tze U’Lmad /צא ולמד / Go and Learn!

This year’s iteration of the (mostly) annual TBA/BDJ Haggadah Slam will focus on the section of the Haggadah that is known as Tze U’Lmad, and which represents some of the earliest aggadic(narrative) midrash in our tradition.  We will have an opening plenary discussing the section as a whole, and why/how it ended up serving as the foundation of the Maggid section of the Haggadah. In breakout sections, different rabbis/teachers will dig deep on a few texts found within that section. You will walk away illuminated, and with חומר לדרוש/homer lidrosh, useful material you can use at your Pesah S’darim!
