Leaning During the Seder

Leaning During the Seder
Day: Sunday
Date: April 17, 2016
Parshat: Aharei Mot
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 472-480

Men and women are both required to lean during the Seder. It is a good idea to appoint one person to remind everyone else to lean at the appropriate times. During the following parts of the Seder leaning is required: during the four cups, when eating the required matza, when eating the "Hillel sandwich" and while eating the Afikoman. During the rest of the Seder it is praiseworthy for a person to lean, but not required. The only time we specifically don't lean is during Birkat Hamazon. One should lean to the left even if he is a lefty.
