Rav Kook on the Hagadah part 1 – Freedom and the Removal of Chametz (leaven). In this podcast, Yiscah Smith explores the interdependent relationship between freedom and the removal of chametz and the difference between a slave and a free person.
Rav Kook on the Haggadah with Yiscah Smith is a 10-part series that explores some of Rav Kook’s commentaries on the Haggadah. The focus will be on moving from the space of spiritual slavery to freedom, from a limited consciousness to an expanded consciousness, from fear based behavior to compassion based behavior, as inspired by excerpts from Rav Kook’s “Olat Ha Ra’ayah.”
It’s never too early to prepare for Pesach and many of us find, with our busy lives, that we don’t have the opportunity to glance at the Haggadah until just a few days before the Seder. It leaves us feeling, “if I only had more time to prepare.” And now we do.
