The Mitzvot of Pesach - Who eats the Korban Pesach


The korban pesach may be consumed only by Jews, and specifically by those who are committed to the Divine covenant. Although we normally reach out to others, the korban pesach memorializes our original trust in Gd on that first Pesach, and so only those who trust are able to participate.

This rule is unique to the korban pesach; our sedarim do not share this status. One should endeavor to involve all Jews in a seder which will welcome them and offer them a meaningful experience.

(Sefer haChinuch, Mitzvah 13 and 14)

Have a great day,
