It's that part of the Seder, the front door is open, the children crowd around excitedly...is the cup of wine in the middle of the table going to spill? Is Elijah coming to visit this year? But when you stop and think about it...Is there really a guy 'out there' who is going to people's Pesach Seder drinking their 5th cup of wine?! This class takes a deeper look into the symbolism of Elija and how he is the secret ingredient to a successful Pesach Seder.
