Wine is the element that
is used to sanctify the meal
on any Sabbath or holiday
because the table assumes
the role of the holy altar in
the ancient temple, the food
represents the sacrifices
and wine was alwyas
poured on the occasion of
the sacrifices. On festivals
when it is mandatory . to ex-
perience joy, wine is fur-
thermore the symbol of joy.
On the eve of Passover at
the Seder, hymns of joy and
thanksgiving are sung and
there is a classic require-
ment that such hymns re-
quire the presence of wine
to indicate the joy we expe-
rience when we sing them.

that police entered the vil-

with the local population in

Eye-witnesses said the

were exaggerated. But they

mentaries, wine is espe-
cially significant on the eve
of the Passover Seder be-
cause of the passage in the
Psalms which likened the
people of Israel to a "vine
(which the Almighty)
plucked out of Egypt"
(Psalms 80:9).
Another source claims
that four cups of wine are _
used successively on the
eve of Passover to demon-
strate the fact that our an-
cestors in Egypt expe-
rienced increasing joy when
their faces lit up with a
greater glow of happiness
when they heard each of
the four expressions of
their promised redemption.
Wine brings about a glow
on one's face and a change
in one's outward appear-
ance and disposition. With
each additional cup of the
four cups of wine, our glow
of joy increases just as it
did for our ancestors when
they heard the four prom-
ises of redemption while
they were yet slaves in
Egypt. (Emek Sh'eyla
One of the matzot (the
middle of the three) is bro-
ken in two at the beginning
of the Seder.
One reason offered is that
the matza- is supposed to be
the "bread of the afflicted"
or the poor. A poor man
does not eat all of his bread
at once because he never
knows if there will be any
bread for him for the next
meal. Thus, he breaks
some off and saves it for
the next meal.
Others claim that this is
done to arouse the curiosity
of the children who see the
irregularity of the pro-
cedures at the Sader table
and are thus stimulated to
ask questions. Some claim
that taking the piece of
matza and wrapping it in a
cloth simulates what the
Hebrews did when they left
Egypt by carrying their
dough, before it was lea-
vened, with them in their
clothes. Still others claim
that splitting the matza also
symbolizes the splitting of
the Red Sea which was one
of the miracles of the
According to some, the
broken piece which is put
away represents the "Afiko-
man" which is symbolic of

the matza which was eaten
with the Paschal Lamb
after the meal. The food on
Passover evening thus has
two representations signify-
ing the two sacrifices of
Passover-the general holi-
day sacrifice (hagiga)
eaten on all major holidays
in the time of the ancient
Temple and the Paschal of-
fering (pesah) eaten during
Temple times on the eve of
the Passover.
