Their physical liberation from Egypt also freed them from their spiritual limitations. As a result, the Jewish people were able to attain great spiritual heights through the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.

At the Seder, we re-experience the Exodus. We must realize that G-d enables each of us to free ourselves of our spiritual limitations which constrict and limit our connection to G-d.

In truth, the mitzvah to remember the Exodus applies every day, morning and night, which is why we mention the Exodus in the daily prayers. Yet, there is more emphasis on remembering it on Passover, especially at the Seder.

Why is remembering the Exodus at the seder, on the anniversary of the Exodus, more meaningful than remembering it during the rest of the year?

Here is a parable from the Magid of Dubna, which answers this question: A king traveled with his entourage to visit his subjects. As they were passing through a forest, one of the riders became very thirsty and fainted. No one had any water so the king sent one of the soldiers to the river, a few miles away.

In the meantime, the person’s condition became very grave. The king ordered his men to immediately start digging for water. Everyone began digging furiously and before long they hit fresh water and revived him. A while later the soldier returned with fresh water from the river.

A few days later a wayfarer traveled through the forest and passed the same place. The sun was hot and he too became very thirsty and was in great need of water.

Now, if someone would tell him that a few miles further there is a river with fresh water, it may not help him much. Who knows if he could reach the river before he would faint. However, the well that was dug on this spot will surely help him. All he had to do is bend down and reach for the drink.

During the rest of the year, we are like the one who must walk down the road to the river to get water. On other days of the year, we too, must make a greater effort to benefit spiritually from the Exodus. But on Passover, the time when the Exodus took place, we are like the man who is standing at the very spot where the well was dug. G-d grants us special powers and our spiritual liberation is at our fingertips, we just have to reach for it. Moshiach NOW!!!

  1. Based on the Halachic Rulings of Rabbi Shlomo Gissinger Shlita, Rav in Lakewood NJ
    Cleaning for Pesach
    Pesach is the Celebration of Freedom. Unfortunately, for too many women the preparation
    for this holiday is anything but freedom; it is a real-life nightmare.
    Cleaning…cleaning…and…more…cleaning. The average housewife does 75% more cleaning than is
    required according to the Halacha. Spring cleaning should be done after Pesach!!!
    As the prohibition of chametz on Pesach is very serious, the Shulchan Aruch: The Code of
    Jewish Law, and later Halachic opinions (the Chafetz Chaim in Shaar Hatziyon OC 442:52),
    commend the practice of holy Jews who proudly uphold various stringencies that have been
    passed down from generation to generation in regards to Pesach. Nevertheless, some of the
    excessive cleaning practices adopted by many people today are not an actual continuation of
    these holy practices. Furthermore, one is not permitted to perform stringencies when they
    infringe upon and undermine basic Torah obligations. Women are obligated in all the mitzvos
    of the Seder, as men are. They also have a mitzvah of enjoying the holiday (Simchas Yom
    Tov). How can these mitzvos be accomplished when women are totally washed out, exhausted
    and too tense from the excessive cleaning to even maintain a conversation! We must maintain
    our priorities!
    Introduction: The obligation to search for, and destroy Chametz, applies to Chametz which
    is the size of one complete k’zayis or more. A k’zayis is approximately the volume of one
    ounce. A standard whisky cup holds one ounce. There is a more stringent Halachic opinion
    that chametz which is even less than a k’zayis is problematic unless it is rendered unfit for
    human consumption. In consideration of that opinion, it is recommended, not required (where
    applicable) to apply a soap based water solution* to the chametz, thus rendering it inedible.
    Please note: Do not confuse this Halacha with the more stringent prohibition of consuming
    even a crumb of chametz.
    Items & Places That Do Not Need To Be Cleaned For Pesach
    The following items need not be cleaned for Pesach: Windows, walls, carpets, ceilings, doors
    and doorknobs. Neither do linens, bedspreads, curtains, towels, and fresh dish towels. For
    those who sell their chametz; all pots, pans, dishes, flatware, appliances (e.g. mixer,
    grinder, toaster, microwave etc) and toys, which are being stored away for Pesach, do not
    require cleaning.

    The closet/room where chametz and/or chametz utensils are being locked up does not
    need to be cleaned for Pesach. Rather, merely take a quick assessment of the
    approximate amount/value of chametz present there, so that it may be properly listed
    among items being sold as chametz.
    Items & Places That Do Need To Be Cleaned For Pesach
    Clothing: The cleaning of clothing can be divided into the following categories:
    1. Pockets of adult clothing that never contained chametz – do not need to be
    checked at all.
    2. Pockets of adult clothing, which during the year may have occasionally contained
    chametz, and which will be worn on Pesach – should be emptied of food and crumbs.
    Alternatively, if one resolves not to put any food in pockets during Pesach – then the
    pockets need only to be frisked for either edible crumbs of chametz (not little
    crumbs mixed with lint and dust), or a “considerable amount” of chametz.
    3. Pockets of children’s clothing, which will be worn on Pesach – should be emptied
    of food and crumbs.
    4. Pockets of other clothing, which will not be worn on Pesach – need only to be
    frisked for either edible crumbs of chametz (not little crumbs mixed with lint and
    dust), or a “considerable amount” of chametz.
    5. Pockets of other clothing which will not to be worn on Pesach, and which are being
    locked up and sold along with the chametz – do not need to be checked at all.
    Should one decide on Pesach to wear clothing on Pesach whose pockets may have
    contained chametz, and whose pockets were not thoroughly cleaned – then extreme care
    must be taken not to put any food into the pockets.
    Note: A “considerable amount” means a k’zayis, which as stated earlier is approximately
    the volume of one ounce.
    Toys: The cleaning of toys can be divided into the following categories:
    1. Toys which will be used on Pesach, and which may contain a “considerable amount”
    of chametz – must be cleaned.
    2. Toys which will be used on Pesach, and which usually do not contain a
    “considerable amount” of chametz, but rather have small particles of dirty
    chametz stuck to them – may be used as-is on Pesach.
    3. Toys which will be used on Pesach, and which usually do not contain a “considerable
    amount” of chametz but have small particles of chametz stuck to them that appear to
    be in edible condition – although according to the majority of Halachic opinions the
    toys may be used as-is, care must be taken not to place these toys on areas where
    food is placed (e.g. tables, countertops etc.). Furthermore, according to the more
    stringent Halachic opinion stated earlier (in the introduction), the small particlesfood should be rendered inedible. This may be accomplished in the following manner:
    Toys which are waterproof – may be soaked (in a tub) in an soap based water solution*
    for a short time and then rinsed. This will render the food inedible. The toys may be
    dried and used as-is. Toys which cannot be immersed in water – can either be wiped
    down with a sponge moistened with an soap based water solution*, or if that is not
    possible, the chametz particles should be physically removed.
    4. Toys which will not be used on Pesach, and which are being locked up and sold
    along with the chametz – do not need to be cleaned at all.
    Seforim/Books: Since the only crumbs that might be present in Seforim or books are
    less than a k’zayis, they do not have to be cleaned. However, care must be taken not to
    place them on areas where food is being placed (e.g. tables, countertops etc).
    Nevertheless, to avoid any problems, seforim or books which commonly have crumbs in
    them (e.g. benchers etc) should be cleaned or sealed away with the chametz.
    Preparing the Kitchen
    Refrigerator/Freezer: Should be washed with a soap based water solution* and may
    then be used without lining the shelves with paper/aluminum foil etc.
    Range top: Clean thoroughly then light flames for ten minutes. Cover the area
    between the burners with aluminum foil. Note: The drip rings/pans need only be cleaned
    not koshered.
    Oven – Self Cleaning: Set the self clean at highest setting for one hour. It is
    preferable that you then wash the inside of the door with a soap based water solution*.
    Oven – Non Self Cleaning: Apply acid solution (e.g. Easy Off), rinse, then light for
    one hour at the highest setting. It is preferable that you then wash the inside of the
    door with a soap based water solution*.
    Microwave: Clean thoroughly (especially around fan area) then don’t use for twenty
    four hours. Boil water in the microwave for several minutes so that it will fill with
    vapor. Since the validity of kashering plastic for Pesach is questionable, use only when
    Pesach food is covered (e.g. in a plastic bag).
    Sink: Clean thoroughly then don’t use with very hot water (i.e. Too hot to touch with
    ones bare hand) for twenty four hours and then perform Iruy (i.e. pour boiling water)
    on entire surface including the spout.
    Counter tops: Clean thoroughly with a soap based water solution (or something
    stronger e.g. Fantastik, Ammonia/water solution, etc
    then either cover with aluminum foil etc. or perform Iruy (even on Formica) and use as
    is. However if you are using the Iruy method, care should be taken not to place Hot
    Pesach food directly (i.e. without dish or container) on counter.
    Pantry and Cabinets: Clean thoroughly with soap based water solution* and then use
    as is (i.e. without lining with paper etc.)
    Kitchen/Dining Room Table: Clean thoroughly with soap based water solution*. It
    is preferable to also cover the table.
    Kitchen/Dining Room Chairs: Clean chairs well with soap based water solution*.
    Food and Non-Food Products
    Introduction: There are three prohibitions relating to Chametz on Pesach: 1)
    Consumption, 2) Deriving Benefit (e.g. feeding a pet chametz), 3) Ownership. These
    prohibitions only apply to chametz which is edible and/or has the ability to sour (leaven)
    other dough. However, chametz which is inedible, and is has lost its power to sour
    (leaven) other dough, although it may not be ingested, it may be owned and even used.
    Thus, the following products (whose chametz ingredients are inedible, and have lost
    their ability to sour (leaven) other dough) may be used on Pesach without any Kosher for
    Pesach labels:
    All cosmetics; e.g. creams, ointments, powders, nail polish, lipstick, blush, eye shadow,
    deodorants, hair spray, shampoos, perfumes etc… Note: When not using a new lipstick
    check old one for crumbs.
    All cleaning agents; e.g. soaps both solid and liquid, dish washing soap, laundry
    detergent, waxes, polishes etc.
    All paper goods, plastic ware, aluminum foil etc.
