- n. Talmudic literature that does not deal with law but is still part of Jewish tradition
Sorry, no etymologies found.
As a kid, my only memories of Pesach (Passover), was drinking three glasses of wine on somewhat an empty stomach, mumbling incoherently phrases out of the hagada (the book read during the ritual of Passover).
Needles to say, opening up the hagada during Passover every year always seemed like new experience, only to be erased before the next year ritual.
Looking through the hagada latter that night, I found a very interesting sentence that might shade light on the dogmatic support to Israel by some Jews.
Happy pesach btw, always seems strange not singing the hagada without you, lots of love some crying going on got to go lots of love
In the Vehee She’amda prayer in the hagada we read that in every generation others have stood against us to destroy us but the blessed Holy One saved us.
