Asher Ge’alanu: The Two Forms of Freedom in the Jewish Calendar

Posted March 23, 2013

The moment of eating the matzah and marror is one of the great highlights of the Jewish calendar. Why is that moment preceded by the recitation of a long and seemingly misplaced bracha? This lecture will explore the rabbinic interpretations for the insertion of "asher ge'alanu" at this point in the Haggadah and will evaluate this bracha in light of two experiences of Jewish freedom as they are expressed in Jewish history and liturgy.
