By Rabbi Eliyahu Safran, Vice President for Communications and Marketing of OU Kosher | Published April 10, 2014

By Rabbi Eliyahu Safran

“With a simple command, God makes clear that teaching is fundamental to our observance of Passover. Fundamental and obligatory. I must teach my son, my children, of the great miracle God performed in delivering me from slavery. Not only must I teach, but my teaching must be personal – to me and to my student.”

“Everyone likes to teach the chacham, Rabbi Safran writes. But the Torah was given to “All of us. Not just the fathers. Not just the teachers. Not just the chachamim. All of us. All the sons. All types. All backgrounds.”
