Meaning from Maggid: Contemporary Scholarship, Contemporary Messages

How does the seder reflect the ideal of social equality? What is the place of the Land of Israel in Jewish history? What meaning can Ezekiel 16 hold for us today? In seeking to understand this collection of midrashim, we will survey the views of several contemporary scholars and discuss how to interpret the Maggid at our sedarim.

This webinar is presented by Rabbi Judith Hauptman.
