True spiritual liberation


"On the first night of Pesach we tell the story of a long search by man for Gd, of Gd responding to the inquisitive search, of Gd taking man, who longs for Him, into His embrace. At the Seder, we try to stimulate the naive curiosity of the children and thereby make them Gd-searchers. The quest for Gd, along with the acceptance of the commandments, is the true spiritual liberation."

(Rabbi Yosef Dov Soloveichik, "Exalted Evening," pg. 28-29)

Good moed,
