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.

Food for Thought Kiddush-Time Shiur

Date: 

July 30, 2016 - 12:00pm

Location: 

Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan, at 805 Columbus Ave at 100th

Join us for a shiur during the end of kiddush. Jeremy Tabick will teach about the idea of "muktzeh" - objects which are forbidden to touch on Shabbat. Is it a secondary fence around the "real" laws of melakhah (forbidden labor), or is it an essential way to observe a Shabbat that is object-oriented and not action-oriented? This brief shiur will overlap the end of kiddush, so there'll be plenty of time to nosh, chat, learn, and still make it to lunch on time.
