For someone having a seder alone, what mitzvot should be done?April 20, 2016 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #1148273zahavasdadParticipant
Just a suggestion, is it possible you can join another seder instead of doing it alone?
I think it will work alot better if you have it with other peopleApril 20, 2016 2:15 pm at 2:15 pm #1148274simcha613Participant
Mr. Mustard- I assume they should all be done.
Another seder question:
What’s the proper procedure for a ba’al seder who needs to give out a lot of matzos for the mitzvas matzah at the seder? When he makes the berachah, should he hold all the matzos that he plans on to giving to everyone at the seder? Or should he only hold the two/three in front of him and have in mind to include all the matzah on the table? If it’s the second way, does he need to give everyone a small piece of the matzah that he was holding during the berachah or can they just take from the matzah that’s on the table?April 20, 2016 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #1148275☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I have everyone have their k’zayis in front of them, and give everyone a small piece from the matzah I say the brachos on.April 20, 2016 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #1148276mw13Participant
All of ’em. Somebody having a seder by himself is actually supposed to ask himself the mah nishtana.April 20, 2016 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #1148277mw13Participant
simcha613 – Check out the Dirshu M”B on ???? ??”? footnote 8, they have a whole write-up on this. In nutshell: One should not hold more than three (or really, two and a half) matzos when making the brachos, but one must eat two kezaysim from the matzos that the brachos were made on. Therefore, R’ Moshe, R’ Bentzion Abba Shaul, R’ Elyashiv, and R’ Nissin Karelitz say one should give every person two or three (again, really two and a half) matzos to make their own brachos on, or two or three matzos for every two or three people to be yotzei together. However, R’ Shlomo Zalman and R’ Chaim Kanievsky say it is good enough to give every person a small piece of the top and middle matza, and they can eat the rest of two kezaysim from other matza (however, the Brisker Rov held that one should eat from matzos that were on the table during the haggadah to to “lechem onei”).April 20, 2016 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #1148278Mashiach AgentMember
dy you got it correctApril 20, 2016 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #1148279ubiquitinParticipant
“it is good enough to give every person a small piece of the top and middle matza, and they can eat the rest of two kezaysim from other matza”
If you do it that way, there is no reason to have two kezeisim. The reason we eat two kezeisim is because safek which matzav is used for mitzvah whole or broken so we do both.
But if you’re eating other matzas what is accomplished by eating two kezeisim?
