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