R. Yoel bin Nun86x86Pesach and the Feast of Matzot –  Two Holidays Rather than One

by Rav Yoel Bin Nun

In the Torah, Pesach (Passover) and the Feast of Matzot (Chag Ha-Matzot) are two connected holidays, rather than a single holiday that begins with the Paschal offering. In this shiur, we will analyze the significance and difference between these two festivals.

Kol Yehuda sichot on the parshaWe are pleased to announce the publication of the book 'Kol Yehuda' by Moreinu Harav Yehuda Amital, sichot on the weekly parashot. The book was edited by Rav Yaakov Fischer. "There was a simple and great truth in the things he told us, sobriety and wisdom of life. Things came out of the week's parasha, but they always touched our lives, were relevant and illuminating as a doctrine of life, and had full internal coverage. They were said as if to himself. In deep faith the conversations were said and with sincerity, and they fell lovingly on listening ears and thirsty hearts, arousing our trust and faith."
