Ist Pessach für die Vergangenheit oder die Zukunft? (Podcast)

Deutschaudio-input-microphoneAn Pessach gedenken wir der ruhmreichen jüdischen Geschichte, dem mit Wundern ermöglichte Auszug aus Ägypten und dem Aufmarsch zu Schawuot und zur Offenbarung am Berg Sinai, sowie zum heiligen Land. Gibt es den Pessach-Seder, um die Vergangenheit nicht zu vergessen? In der Haggada lesen wir, “in jeder Generation, soll der Mensch [der den Seder feiert] sich vorstellen, als ob er selber aus Ägypten herausgezogen ist”. Weshalb und wieso? Könnte die Aufgabe des Pessach-Seders auch sein, uns für die jüdische Aufgabe zu sensibilisieren?

    I wouldn’t understand the shiur, so this comment is likely entirely offbase, but I don’t see the importance of internalizing Yetzi’as Mitzrayim in terms of defining the Jewish Mission.

    If we pretend both words are Hebrew Yetzi’as Mitzrayim translates hyperliterally to “leaving the pair of troubles”. I see the importance of remembering Yetzi’as Mitzrayim as bitachon, trusting that all our troubles have a purpose, and Hashem will end them when they’ve accomplished what they could. And the person making the seder has to see himself as leaving Mitzrayim, to see Hashem taking him personally out whenever he finds himself between a rock and a hard place.

      Well, I am developing an idea of Rav Menachem Leibtag’s, who calls the enslavement in Egypt “boot camp,” because at berit bdin habtarim, there arguably was no sin meriting 400 years of lack of sovereignty down to outright enslavement. Thete are, of course other views, but this one is to me extremely powerful, inspiring and in sync with the Haggada.

        I wouldn’t disagree. I was more saying that life is a bootcamp, and I am obligated to actively relive the exodus — whose “bootcamp” nature is more blatant — is to help me carry that lesson from YM to my own personal life.

        Thus my bit about bitachon in terms of “all our troubles have a purpose, and Hashem will end them when they’ve accomplished what they could”.
