LEADER:We are about to observe the Pesach. We remember how YHWH delivered us from Mitzrayim and we remember our Covenant in Y’shua haMashiyach. YHWH delivered Israel from the bondage of slavery, He commanded us to observe this Moed and remember it throughout all our generations. We do not celebrate with indifference as though this is only an historical event, but we give thanks to YHWH and to His Mashiyach for the deliverance He has provided for each of us. Through the death and resurrection of haMashiyach Y’shua, we too shall be passed over from death and we too shall be delivered from the bondage of sin. As we proceed with the Seder our spirits meditate on YHWH and His Mashiyach, each of the Scriptures we read and prayers we offer are Kadosh unto YHWH. This is a Moed, an appointed time of YHWH that was designed for us before the foundations of the world began. You have chosen and called to be in this place tonight because of what YHWH has done for you. Before the foundations of the world began YHWH knew you would respond to Him and He has prepared to meet with you now. To his talmidim haMashiyach said, “With great desire I have desired to eat this Pesach with you before I suffer”, how much more then does haMashiyach desire to see his Talmidim observing Pesach today. Yes, his Blood is very highly esteemed among all who are here. As we proceed I ask that each one will speak to our Father YHWH according to your spirits, even throughout the Seder. Let us each remind YHWH of our Love for Him and our thankfulness for all He has done for us, our families, our congregation and our people.
READER 1: “These are the feasts of YHWH, even holy convocations, which you shall proclaim in their seasons. In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is YHWH’s Pesach.” Vayikra (Leviticus) 23:4-5
READER 2: “And YHWH said unto Moshe and Aharon, This is the ordinance of the Pesach: There shall no son of a Nekar (stranger) eat thereof: But every man’s servant that is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof. A Toshav (foreigner) and an hired servant shall not eat thereof. In one house shall it be eaten; you shall not carry forth the meat out of one house into another; neither shall you break a bone thereof. All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. And when a Ger (stranger) shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the Pesach to YHWH, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof. One law shall be to him that is born in HaEretz, and unto the Ger (stranger) that sojourns among you.” Sh’mot (Exodus) 12:43-49
READER 3: Y’shua said unto them, With great desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of Elohim. Lucas 22:15-16
LEADER: Light is a symbol of YHWH’s presence. The light we see during the Moedim and each Shabbat reminds us that Elohim is our light. Y’shua said, I am the light of the world: he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. YHWH is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? We are instructed in B’resheet 3:15 that YHWH would put hatred between the deceiver and the woman, and between the serpents seed and the seed of the woman; the seed of woman would crush the head of the serpent, and it is through Miriam that Y’shua was brought into the world.
WOMAN: Let us kindle the festival lights.
Ba-rukh A-tah YAHWEH E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam a-sher kid-sha-nu B’-mi-tzvo-tav v’-tzi-va-nu l’-had-lik ner shel (Shabbat) Yom Tov. Amen Blessed are you, O YHWH our Elohim, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us by your commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the (Shabbat) Festival lights.
Ba-rukh A-tah YAHWEH E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam a-sher she-he-che-ya-nu v’-ki-yi-mo-nu v’-hi-gi-a-nu l’z-man ha-zey. Amen Blessed are you, O YHWH our Elohim, King of the Universe, who has kept us in life and has preserved us, and has enabled us to reach this season.
LEADER: Y’shua said “Do not think that I have come to destroy the Torah or the Prophets; I have not come to destroy but to make full. I tell you the truth, that until heaven and earth will pass away, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke, will by any means disappear from Torah until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these mitzvoth (commandments) and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:17-19
READER 4: Then YHWH said to Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh: Because of My Mighty hand he will let them go; because of My mighty hand he will drive them out of his country.” Sh’mot 6:1
ALL: “I am YHWH, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment. I will take you as my own people, and I will be your Elohim. Then you will know that I am YHWH your Elohim, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.” Sh’mot 6:6-7
LEADER: Because of these promises we have read, we will drink four glasses of wine during the Seder: The Cup of Sanctification, The Cup of Plagues, The Cup of Redemption and The Cup of Praise.
YHWH says, I am YHWH and I will bring you out! Therefore we are to be separate unto YHWH. We will not eat anything that contains yeast, we do not and will not puff ourselves up before YHWH or each other. Yeast represents sin, we remove the sin from our lives.
YHWH says, I will free you! We remember the ten Plagues in Egypt which YHWH used against our enemies to free us from slavery. We also remember how many trials in our own lives were caused by rebellion to YHWH, each trial is there to help us develop character and humility in our walk with YHWH
YHWH says, I will redeem you! The blood of the Passover lamb saved us from death, Y’shua is our Passover Lamb, His blood was shed for us in exchange for the debt we owed YHWH for each of our sins. This cup of Redemption is the very cup Y’shua instituted when He instructed His Disciples to drink His Blood and eat His Body. This is how we apply His blood today, we come before YHWH through the sacrifice Y’shua made for us.
YHWH said, I will take you as my own! We give you thanks YHWH for calling us into your Glorious Kingdom. We shall speak of the Glorious Majesty of Your Kingdom and talk of Your Great Power. Your Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom and Your Dominion endures throughout all generations. While we have breath our lips shall continually Praise YHWH, Your Right Hand has brought us Y’shua and You have brought us into Your Kingdom. Halleluyah!
READER 1: If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no sacrifice for our sins, only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of Elohim. Anyone who rejected the Torah of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of Elohim under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of Grace? Hebrews 10:26-29
READER 2: “When the hour came, Y’shua and his disciples reclined at the table. And He said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of Elohim. After taking the cup, He gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the Kingdom of Elohim comes.” Lucas 22:14-18
LEADER: Let us fill our cups in preparation of the First Cup.
Sanctification is the first step toward entering the Kingdom of Elohim. YHWH is holy, He is of purer eyes than to behold evil, and we cannot enter His presence with sin in our lives. He established the holy sacrifices and offerings for us to be cleansed from sin. He says, I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell you: for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof. Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? Sacrifices and offerings are not something YHWH needs for Himself, these are made so we can understand that the penalty of our sin comes at great cost. Y’shua haMashiyach bore the penalty of our sins, as we put our faith in Y’shua and do His Commandments we are Sanctified by Him and are able to enter into the presence of Our Father.
Let us lift the Cup of Sanctification
ALL: Through the blood of Y’shua we are Sanctified.
ALL: Ba-rukh a-tah Yahweh E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam bo-rey pri ha-ga-fen.
Blessed are you, O YHWH our Elohim, Ruler of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the vine (drink the first cup)
READER 3: The blessing we say before drinking the wine is not only referring to YHWH who causes grapes to grow on a vine, this blessing also reminds us of Y’shua’s first miracle when he took pots of water the fruit of the vine “And the wine was running out, and his mother said to Y’shua, They have no wine. Y’shua said to her, What do we have in common woman? My hour has not yet come. His mother said to the servants, Whatever He tells you, do. And there were there six water pots of stone that were set for purification, which each held two or three liquid measures. Y’shua said to them, Fill the water pots with water. And they filled them to the top. He said to them, draw now and take to the head of the feast. And they took it. And when the head of the feast had tasted the water that had become wine, and did not know from where it came, but the servants knew, because they had drawn the water, the head of the feast called to the bridegroom. And said to him, Everyone first brings good wine, and when they are drunk, then that which is inferior. But you have kept the good wine until now. This was the first sign that Y’shua did in Kat’ne of Galil. And He made known His glory, and His talmidim believed in Him.” Yochanan 2:3-11
2 URECHATZ READ Psalm 24
LEADER: We now wash our hands before we eat the Karpas. As we wash our hands, let each us renew our commitment to YHWH for the sake of His Mashiyach and dedicate ourselves to walk before our King with “clean hands and a pure heart”.
(Pour water over hands and then dry with the towel provided. Do not dip hands in the water)
ALL: Ba-rukh A-tah YAHWEH E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam a-sher kid-sha-nu B’-mitz-vo-tav v’-tzi-va-nu ahl na-tie-lat ya-da-yim. Blessed are you, O YHWH our Elohim, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us by your commandments, and has commanded us to wash our hands.
READER 4: “The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help because of their slavery went up to YHWH. YHWH heard their groaning and He remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob. So YHWH looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them.” Exodus 2:23-25
LEADER: This is the Karpas or parsley, we will dip the Karpas into the salt water twice to symbolize the tears and pain of slavery and the Red Sea crossing that destroyed Pharaohs armies. We also remember that although we have painful experiences in our lives, we will always have the hope of HaMashiyach to free us from tribulation.
ALL: Ba-rukh a-tah YAHWEH E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam b-orey pri ha-’a-da-mah. Blessed are you, O YHWH our Elohim, Ruler of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the earth.
Dip the parsley in the salt water two times, then eat it.
LEADER: Yachatz means to divide or break apart, the consequences of sin causes us to be divided from our Heavenly Father. Leaven puffs up, it represents our pride and ego which draws us into sin.
READER 1: Don’t you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast as you really are. For Y’shua, our Passover lamb has been sacrificed. Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but take bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Corinthians 5:6-8
LEADER: Y’shua said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. Matthew 16:6 Some of you have noticed a boiled egg on your tables, a boiled egg is part of a “traditional” Seder of the Pharisees. The ishtar egg did a bunny hop into Pharisaical Judaism, it has not place in our seder this exemplifies the leaven of false tradition.
ALL: But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Matthew 15:9
WOMAN: 1) place napkin on floor 2) place egg on napkin 3) place napkin over egg 4) step on the egg with foot then place in garbage
ALL: “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” Revelation 14:8
LEADER: Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the YHWH D’varim 8:3
READER 2: So the people took their dough before the yeast was added, and carried it on their shoulders in kneading bowels wrapped in clothing. Shemot 12:34
READER 3: We each have three Matzahs on our Seder plate ultimately they represent Elohim who is without sin, we think of the Shema “YHWH Elohenu YHWH Echad”, the middle Matzah represents Elohenu which is Y’shua who came in the Name of YHWH. YHWH reveals His Mashiyach to us through the work of the Ruach HaKodesh.
LEADER: We now break the middle Matzah which is the bread of affliction, one half of this Matzah now becomes what we call a-fi-ko-men, meaning “HE CAME”. We wrap the afikomen in a cloth and hide it in the room, after dinner the children will search for the afikomen, whoever finds it will be given a reward.
ALL: In haste we went out of Egypt.
ALL: Shema, Yisrael, Yahweh Elohenu, Yahweh echad Love YHWH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. D’varim 6:4-9
READER 4: In the future, when your son asks you, “What is the meaning of the stipulations, decrees and laws YHWH our Elohim has commanded you?” Tell him: “We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, but YHWH brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. Before our eyes YHWH sent miraculous signs and wonders great and terrible upon Egypt and Pharaoh and his whole household. But He brought us out from there to bring us in and give us the land that He promised on oath to our forefathers. YHWH commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear YHWH our Elohim, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today. And if we are careful to obey all this law before YHWH our Elohim, as He has commanded us, that will be our righteousness.” D’varim 6:20-25
READER 1: And when your children ask you, “What does this ceremony mean to you?” then tell them, “It is the Passover sacrifice to YHWH, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when He struck down the Egyptians.” Shemot 12:26-27
YOUNG CHILD: (Rising to ask the four questions)
Ma nish-ta-nah ha-lai-lah ha-zeh mi-kol ha-ley-lot!
How different this night is from all other nights!
- She-be-khol ha-ley-lot a-nu okh-lin kha-meytz u-ma-tzah. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh ku-lo ma-tzah.
On all other nights we eat bread or matzah. On this night why do we eat only matzah?
- She-be-khol ha-ley-lot a-nu okh-lin she’ar yerakot. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh a-ror.
On all other nights we eat all kinds of vegetables. On this night why do we eat only bitter herbs?
- She-be-khol ha-ley-lot eyn a-nu mat-bi-lin a-fi-lu pa-’am e-khet. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh shtey f’a-min.
On all other nights we do not dip our vegetables even once. On this night why do we dip them twice?
- She-be-khol ha-ley-lot a-nu okh-lin beyn yo-she-vin u-veyn me-su-bin. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh ku-la-nu me-su-bin.
On all other nights we eat our meals sitting or reclining. On this night why do we eat only reclining?
LEADER: Tonight is different from all other nights because tonight we will remember what Elohim has done for his people.
ALL: Blessed is the Almighty Elohim who has given the Torah to His people.
LEADER: The Torah speaks of the four sons:
- A WISE son
- A WICKED son
- A SIMPLE son
- A son who is UNABLE TO ASK
1) What does the Wise son say?
The Wise son seeks knowledge: “What is the meaning of the stipulations, decrees and laws YHWH our Elohim has commanded you?” D’varim 6:20
2) What does the Wicked son say?
The Wicked son looks down on the beliefs of his people and scoffs: “What do you mean by this rite?”
3) What does the Simple son say?
The Simple son asks a simple question, “What does this mean?” Sh’mot 13:14
4) What does the son say who is Unable to ask?
And the son who is Unable to ask, the parent must then teach:
“It is because of what YHWH did for me when I went free from Egypt.” Sh’mot 13:8
READER 2: The Israelites were already in the land of Egypt. They became fertile and multiplied and increased very greatly, so that the land was filled with them. A new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph, and imposed great labor and hardship on the Israelites. But the more the Israelites were oppressed, the more they increased and spread out. The king then ordered that all newborn baby boys be killed. The Pharaoh charged all his people, saying “every boy that is born you shall throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.”
READER 3: A Levite woman conceived and bore a son and hid him for three months. After that time, she prepared a wicker basket and laid the child in the basket and placed it among the reeds by the bank of the Nile. The daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe in the Nile and saw the basket among the reeds and had her slave girl fetch the basket. The Pharaoh’s daughter took pity on the child and made him her own son. She named him Moshe, explaining, “I drew him out of water.”
READER 1: Moshe grew and had learned of his heritage. After witnessing an Egyptian beating an Israelite, he struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. When Pharaoh learned of the matter, he sought to kill Moses, but Moshe fled from Pharaoh. He arrived in the land of Midian, where he married his wife, Zipporah.
READER 2: A long time had gone by and the king of Egypt died. The Israelites were groaning under bondage and cried out to YHWH. YHWH heard their cries. YHWH appeared to Moses in a burning bush telling him that he would use Moshe to lead His people out of Egypt into a land “flowing with milk and honey.” So Moshe returned to Egypt and he took the rod of Elohim with him.
READER 3: Moshe and his brother Aharon went to the Pharaoh to ask for the release of their people. But the Pharaoh’s heart was hardened against the Israelites and would not release them from the bondage of slavery. Each time the Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites go, the land of Egypt came under a great plague. With the tenth and most awful plague, the heart of Pharaoh would be pierced.
ALL: “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn, both men and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am YHWH. Sh’mot 12:12
READER 4: And the blood on the houses where you are staying shall be a sign for you: when I see the blood, I will pass over you, so that no plague will destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. Sh’mot 12:13
READER 1: This day shall be to you one of remembrance: you shall celebrate it as a festival to YHWH throughout the ages; you shall celebrate it as an institution for all time. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread; on the very first day you shall remove leaven from your houses, for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day to the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel. You shall celebrate a sacred occasion on the first day, and a sacred occasion on the seventh day; no work at all shall be done on them; only what every person is to eat, that alone may be prepared for you. You shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this very day I brought your ranks out of the land of Egypt; you shall observe this day throughout the ages as an institution for all time. Sh’mot 12:14-17
LEADER: Let us fill our cups a second time, on this night we are filled with joy in remembrance of YHWH’s Mighty Deliverance. We must also remember the great sacrifice at which redemption was purchased. A multitude of lives were sacrificed to bring the Israelites out of Egypt. As we recite each plague, let us dip our little finger into the cup, allowing a drop of wine to fall, reducing the fullness of our cup of joy this night.
DISEASE UPON CATTLE
DEATH OF THE FIRST BORN
LEADER: Rabbi Gamaliel, grandson of Rabbi Hillel and teacher of Rabbi Paul the Apostle, taught that in recounting the Passover story one must explain three things: The Passover Lamb, Unleavened Bread, and the Bitter Herbs. It is YHWH who we honor in remembering that He passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians. The shank bone reminds us of the lamb whose blood marked the doors of the Israelites, and those who had the Fear of YHWH. The lamb was to be without defect, brought into the household on the 10th day of Nisan and cared for. On the 14th day of Nisan the Israelites slaughtered the lamb and put the blood on the sides and tops of the doorframes of their houses. YHWH gave His people instructions that through their obedience to His Word they would they be spared from the angel of death. The Word of YHWH as told by Isaiah prophesied of Y’shua who was led like a lamb to the slaughter. Y’shua was the perfect lamb, even the Right Hand of YHWH who set us free from the bondage of sin and death.
ALL: “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive POWER, and RICHES, and WISDOM, and STRENGTH, and HONOUR, and GLORY, and BLESSING”. Revelation 5:12
READER 2: The Israelites were saved by YHWH! Not by an angel or any other messenger. For it is written: “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn both men and animals and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am YHWH!” Sh’mot 12:12
LEADER: (Lifting the middle half of Matzah) Why do we eat this unleavened bread? We eat it to remember when YHWH brought us out of Egypt in haste. As it is written: And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared and food for themselves. Sh’mot 12:39
LEADER: MAROR (Lifting the Bitter Herb): Why do we eat bitter herb? We eat bitter herb because of the hardship that the Israelites had to bear. As it is written: They made their lives bitter with hard labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their hard labor the Egyptians used them ruthlessly. Sh’mot 1:14
LEADER: We bless YHWH with our second cup of wine, the cup of plagues.
ALL: Ba-rukh a-tah A-do-nai E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam bo-rey pri ha-ga-fen.
Blessed are you, O YHWH our Elohim, Ruler of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the vine. (drink the second cup)
ALL: Ba-rukh A-tah A-do-nai E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam a-sher kid-sha-nu B’-mitz-vo-tav v’-tzi-va-nu ah-’na-tie-lat yah-da-yim. Blessed are you, O YHWH our Elohim, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments, and has commanded us to wash our hands.
LEADER: (Leader holding all the matzah on the seder plate) We will now bless YHWH as the giver of the matzah as food.
ALL: Ba-rukh A-tah Adonai E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam ha-mo-tzi le-khem min ha-’a-retz.
Blessed are You, O YHWH our Elohim, King of the Universe, who brings forth bread from the earth.
(This is the bread blessing Y’shua pronounced at the Last Supper, do not eat the Matzah at this time.)
LEADER: (Leader holding the top and middle-half pieces of Matzah) The Matzah of Passover is not only for food, but to fulfill the commandment. Let us bless YHWH for giving the commandment of the Matzah.
ALL: Ba-rukh A-tah A-do-nai El-o-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam a-sher kid-sha-nu B’-mitz-vo-tav v’-tzi-va-nu a-he-lot ma-tza. Blessed are You, O YHWH our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who has sanctified us with His commandments, and has commanded us concerning the eating of the matzah. (Do not eat the Matzah at this time.)
ALL: Ba-rukh A-tah A-do-nai El-o-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam a-sher kid-sha-nu B’-mitz-vo-tav v’-tzi-va-nu a-he-lot Ma-ror. Blessed are you, O YHWH our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who has sanctified us with His commandments, and has commanded us concerning the eating of the Maror. (Everyone eat the top Matzah with Maror.)
READER 3: This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is YHWH’s Passover. Sh’mot 12:11
ALL: And they shall eat the meat in that night, roasted with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Sh’mot 12:8 (Everyone eat the bottom Matzah with Maror.)
LEADER: Let us now eat and remember the sweetness of YHWH’s Grace, Mercy and Love for each of us, for He sent Y’shua, the Messiah, to be our Passover Lamb. Torah says that each of use were released from the bondage of slavery along with all Israel, we are also saved from the bondage of sin through HaMashiyach.
(Eat the broken half-Matzah with the Maror and the Charoset together)
LEADER: How great is YHWH’s goodness to us! For each of His acts of mercy and kindness we declare dayenu (it would have been sufficient).
LEADER: If YHWH had merely rescued us, but had not judged the Egyptians.
LEADER: If He had only destroyed their gods, but had not parted the Red Sea.
LEADER: If He had only drowned our enemies, but had not fed us with manna.
LEADER: If He had only led us through the desert, but had not given us the Sabbath.
LEADER: If He had only given us the Torah, but not the land of Israel.
11 SHULCHAN ORECH (Directions on procedure)
Person appointed says a prayer then Dinner is served, afterward we all return to finish the last part of the Haggadah.
The children must find the afikomen and return it to the Leader for a reward. The children receive a reward as a symbol of the Redemption we received that Y’shua paid for at the cost of His life.
LEADER: Let us fill our cups for the third time this evening.
LEADER: (Lifting the afikomen) We will now eat the afikomen, which means “He Came”.
The taste of the afikomen should linger in our mouths. It is about this afikomen that Y’shua said
“This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
The Pesach cannot be completed without the afikomen,
nor can our redemption be complete without Y’shua, the Bread of Life!
ALL RISE FOR THE READING AND BLESSINGS
READER 4: See, My servant will act wisely; He will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted. Just as there were many who were appalled at Him, His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and His form marred beyond human likeness so will He sprinkle many nations, and kings will shut their mouths because of Him. For what they were not told, they will see, and what they have not heard, they will understand. Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of YHWH been revealed? He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him, nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we esteemed Him not. Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by Elohim, smitten by Him, and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and YHWH has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He did not open his mouth; He was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so He did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment He was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people He was stricken. Yeshayahu 52:13-53:8
ALL: This is My Body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
ALL: Ba-rukh A-tah Yahweh El-o-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-’o-lam ha-mo-tzi le-khem min ha-’a-retz.
Blessed are You, O YHWH our Elohim, King of the Universe, who brings forth bread from the earth. (eat this bread)
LEADER: (Lifting the cup) This is the Cup of our Redemption and Salvation

LEADER: This Cup symbolizes the blood of the Passover Lamb. After Y’shua and His disciples had eaten supper, Y’shua said “For this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matt 26:28

LEADER: Chaverim, Let us fill our cups in preparation for the Cup of Praise. (Lifting the extra cup for Eliyahu) Before HaMashiyach returns as Mashiyach Ben David, there will be many signs and catastrophic events that will shake the heavens and the earth.
ALL: “See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of YHWH comes.” (Malachi 4:5)
LEADER: Eliyahu was taken up by a great whirlwind in a chariot of fire. We wait for him today to return and announce the second coming of HaMashiyach Ben David.
READER 1: An angel of YHWH announced the coming of Yochanan the Immerser, “And he will go on before YHWH, in the spirit and power of Eliyahu, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous to make ready a people prepared for YHWH.” Luqas 1:17
READER 2: Y’shua said of Yochanan, “And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come.” Mattityahu 11:14
READER 3: It was this same Yochanan who saw Y’shua and declared, “Behold, the Lamb of Elohim, who takes away the sin of the world!” Yochann 1:29
LEADER: We are about to drink the Fourth and final Cup of the Seder, the Cup of Praise. YHWH said, “I will take you as my own”. Our Father YHWH bids us to come unto Him and be with Him and we give Him Praise.
ALL RISE FOR THE READING AND BLESSINGS
ALL: Y’shua says, I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come . And let him that hear say , Come. And let him that is thirsty come.

LEADER: Y’shua and His Talmidim sung this Psalm just before they went out into the mount of Olives.
PSALMIST: Psalm 118
READER 4: “The time is coming,” declares YHWH, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them, ” declares YHWH. “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares YHWH. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their Elohim, and they will be my people. No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know YHWH,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares YHWH. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” Yirmeyahu 31:31-34
READER 1: “Kadosh, kadosh, kadosh is YHWH Elohim Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.” Revelation 4:8
READER 2: “Kadosh, kadosh, kadosh is YHWH Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.” Yeshayahu 6:3
READER 3: Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Mashiyach is it taken away. Even to this day when Moshe is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to YHWH, the veil is taken away. YHWH is Spirit, and where the Spirit of YHWH is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect YHWH’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from YHWH, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:12-18
LEADER: May YHWH bless you and protect you. May YHWH deal kindly and graciously with you. May YHWH bestow His favor upon you and grant you peace. B’midbar 6:24-26

Had Elohim only brought us out of Egypt, it would have been enough for us.
Had Elohim only given us the Shabbat, it would have been enough for us.
Had Elohim only given us the Torah, it would have been enough for us.
