PARSHAT METZORA/SHABBAT HAGADOL

Rabbi Ari Ellis


Eliyhau HaNavi – Our Special Guest

Of the many memorable aspects of the Seder that we all look forward to each year, one of the most beloved is the Cup of Eliyahu HaNavi. Children all over the world stare at

the cup trying to see if he came and drank the wine. Pesach celebrates our redemption from slavery in Egypt. And according to our tradition, Eliyahu HaNavi will herald the

coming of Mashiach ushering in the final and complete redemption.
