Halell HaGadol: The Fifth Cup, March 27 & April 3

Chassidut & Kabbala
Mr. Mordechai Kaufman

The Fifth Cup and Hallel HaGadol as elucidated in Maharal's Gevurot HaShem. In this course we will specifically explore Maharal's analysis of the culminating latter part of the Seder, including Birkat HaMazon (Third Cup), Hallel (Fourth Cup) and lastly, the Hallel HaGadol which is the Fifth Cup. Maharal beautifully portrays the transition within the Seder from historic narrative to recognition and appreciation of being Am Yisrael, and finally, to the most joyous, ecstatic outpouring of Thanksgiving existing within the entire body of Jewish liturgy.

Analyzing Aggadah with Maharal

Analyzing Aggadah with Maharal

Machshava (Jewish Thought)
Mr. Mordechai Kaufman

The Maharal of Prague created a lot more than just a Golem! He wrote several monumental works such as the Be'er HaGolah which establishes the parameters for the proper study of Aggadah, the enormous non-legalistic Rabbinic component of the Talmud. His approach reveals the profound depth of wisdom of the Rabbis, specifically within this somewhat neglected area. The shiur will study Maharal's analysis of 16 amazing Aggadot in Be'er 4, whose literal meaning poses serious questions to the logical mind and the Believer's faith.
