"Thc Why and How of Preparing;
Your Home for Passover"

Nechama Glogower

What is "chametz" and why do we work so hard to eliminate it from our lives during
Passover? This session will examine biblical and rabbinic texts to uncover a number
of definitions and interpretations of "chametz." It will also offer practical suggestions
for organizing the task of Passover housecleaning. All who have a Jewish home,
regardless of gender, age, background, or level of observance, are welcome.
No Hebrew knowledge is required.

"Haggadah Hebrew Highlights`

,lira Lev

Enrich your Seder with new insights gleaned from an enhanced awareness of what
the Haggadah actually says. Capture the essence of the text, which is so often lost in
translation. This is a language-oriented workshop for which some familiarity with
Hebrew words and phrases is recommended. It will walk students through selected
passages of the Passover Haggadah, including some of the best-loved (but not
necessarily well-understood) songs that are sung at the seder.

"Elijah the Prophet: Magical, Mystical
Man of God"
Rabbi Joshua L. Bennett


We save a place for him at every seder and bris, and we sing about him at havdalah
every week. Come explore the magical world of Elijah the Prophet! This mini-course
will examine biblical and rabbinic texts about this intriguing figue-his origins, talents,
and entry into Jewish folklore, and his role in Jewish theology, mysticism, and
messianism. We will also compare Christian and Jewish traditions concerning Elijah.
Some Hebrew knowledge would be welcome but is not required.

Getting ready
for Passover
can be a rich
and fulfilling

'Rabbinic Fantasies AO0UX P'assover

?abbi Daniel Nevins

The story of Yetziat Mitzrayim - the Exodus from Egypt- has long been a gold mine
of fantasy and theological creativity for our sages. Especially during the time of the
Talmud, many imaginative and fascinating spins on Passover were composed by the
rabbis in the literary genre of midrash aggadah. This session will introduce learners to
the traditional Jewish study model of a Beit Midrash, in which students pair up to
read aloud and discuss classical texts. Some knowledge of Hebrew would be wel-
come but is not required.

You are cordially
invited to explore the
many dimensions of the
festival-that our
tradition calls
"Z'man Heruteinu"-
The Season of
Our Freedom.
