Marror and Matzah: Preparation and Action


"Matzah is parallel to the goal of accepting the yoke of Divine monarchy…

"Marror is because they embittered the lives of our ancestors, parallel to the act of preparation, for the act of preparation which makes us ready for the higher sanctity which will be revealed upon us in the future comes because our spirits are prepared for it…

"Therefore we say, ‘Because of this,’ and not ‘Because of these,’ plural, for it demonstrates the unity of the preparation and the goal, the unity of day and night."

(Rav Kook, Haggadah shel Pesach)

Have a great day,
