Remembering the Korban Pesach in Masechet Pesachim and in Ancient Jewish Sources
Yedidah Koren / March 22, 2021
Pesach is a holiday of remembrance. In this class we will think about the ways in which the Seder night is intended at remembering - and reenacting - the Korban Pesach, and the ways in which the Korban Pesach itself was intended to reenact the first Pesach offering that was celebrated in Egypt. Alongside sources from Masechet Pesachim, we will study additional ancient Jewish sources that reminisce about this offering, but in a very different way.
