2014-01-15 TuBshvat SederOn Wednesday, January 15th, 2014, we enjoyed a Tu B'Shevat seder led by Rabbi Shlomo Yaffe that explicated complex Jewish concepts in an inspiring way.  We have produced a video of the event, which you can watch below.

We also provide the hagaddah that was used.  You can print and have it handy while watching the seder. (You can also use the haggadah as the basis for your own seders.)

(This haggadah was assembled by Rabbi Yaffe, who began with Rabbi Maayan's haggadah from our 2006 Seder, and augmented it with material from Neshei U'bnos Chabad.) 

And here's the video:

An inspirational message presented by Rabbi Shlomo Yaffe during a class on the Rosh Hashanah Torah Reading (which is excerpted from Vayera).

The basis for this d'rash originates with Rabbi Meyer (Dr. Marcus) Lehmann, a 19th Century orthodox rabbi who was also a prolific writer of short stories.

The text being analyzed is a strange passage in Genesis chapter 21.

You can watch a video of his presentation, entitled “The Hidden Lights of Chanukah,” below.
