The book of Exodus famously evokes five types of redemption that God brings the Jewish people. And yet at the seder, we commemorate these five redemptions by drinking four cups of wine. What explains this anomalous practice, and what can we learn from it? In this session, we’ll discover the rabbinic idea of “waiting for God” and what it means – and we’ll also explore whether and how it can help us celebrate Pesach more meaningfully – especially this year.

Join us in Reisman Hall or on the Livestream.
