The Four Questions

The Four Questions
Day: Monday
Date: March 30, 2015
Parshat: Shemini
Yalkut Yosef: 473

After saying "Ha Lahma Anya" but before the "Ma Nishtana" we fill up the second cup and we remove the Seder plate from the table. The reason for both of these is to make the children curious so they will ask the Ma Nishtana. If there are no children present the Four Questions still must be asked by someone there. It is a mitzva to teach ones kids about Yetziat Mitrayim. Even if the kids don't ask one must still volunteer the information on their level. After the four questions are asked the Seder plate is brought back to the table and the Hagada continues. One should not talk during the reading of the Hagada unless there is a real need.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
