HASHKAMA MINYAN - RABBI BLANCHARD'S BLURB
  • Profound religious experience creates/allows a series of interconnecting psycho-spiritual processes that are often focused around a problem. We struggle to find ways for the different elements of the processes to work together synthetically.  For example, as we work through the Haggadah, we might ask: What does redemption mean? to  me? to us? We might begin to think about what " enslaves" us and what might free us and help us move beyond our spiritual and psychological limits.  Throughout our seder,  the Haggadah is "the place"  in which we ask : What would it mean for us to be free? 
  • As we succeed in forming unified answers to our questions, , we experience a type of catharsis, even deliverance. We have moments of deep comprehension and commitment, moments of  transition toward greater freedom. Given this way of understanding religious/spiritual experience, we may say that, at a Pesach Seder, the participants  seek to get past sharing interesting ideas and become able to say: I'm experiencing multiple personal "transitions" that are here and now resulting in personal transformations, movements toward being free.  These liberating transformations are an important part of what makes us human. 
  • Reflections on the Passover Haggadah
