The Five Rabbis in Bnei Brak

Like many Jewish educators, I am fascinated by the Pesah Seder.   In particular, I love finding new commentaries and customs for the seder that help enrich portions of the seder that are examined less frequently than others, for while one can always find a new commentary on the four sons or the ten plagues, many portions of the seder receive considerably less attention.  This past week, I published a short seder supplement for the Schechter School of Long Island entitled The Pesah Seder: A Night of Endless Learning, which centers around the five rabbis who spent the entire night studying the Exodus from Egypt in Bnei Brak.   I have felt that the story of the five rabbis never receives the attention it deserves, even though the text teaches us something powerful about what it means to see learning as a process without limits.  Please feel free to use this supplement at your sedarim, and may each of you have a meaningful learning experience as we commemorate our journey from slavery to freedom.
