Pardes Daily – Hasidut Track: The bread of faith
Sources: Olat Reiyah, Haggadah 30
Course Description: Prepare to Experience Inner Freedom and Liberation: We will explore excerpts from Rav Kook’s deep and spiritually infused commentaries on the Passover Haggadah. These profound teachings will guide us as we move along the path to discover aspects of our true essence – the image of the Divine in Whom we have been created and Who continues to dwell within us. This awareness will allow us to not only approach the Seder experience in a more informed, inspired and indeed prepared way, but also to experience individual and personal spiritual redemption, as we celebrate the “time of our freedom.”
