Why Are There Four Cups of Wine at the Seder?

Date: 

April 2, 2020 - 8:30pm

Location: 

Virtual meeting, via Zoom conference

This is part 2 of our 2-part pre-Pesach shiur series with Jeremy Tabick. Both sessions will be recorded for later viewing. 

The Mishnah in Pesahim constructs its Seder around the four cups of wine, and these are a central feature of our Sedarim even today. But why? Why are there any cups at all? Why four? Why doesn't the Mishnah explain this? We'll look at a sugya from the Talmud Yerushalmi—the older, more mysterious cousin of the Talmud Bavli—that discusses this question from several angles, each giving us a window into what the Seder might be about.
