Haggadah Section: Hallel

Elijah the Prophet

On the Seder night, we open the door for Elijah the Prophet, and we place a cup of wine on the table especially for him.

Our hopes have long been centered on Elijah since legends has it that he will herald the time of complete human freedom. But he will come only when people have prepared the way for him. This simply means that we, all of us, are Elijah. We must liberate ourselves from prejudice and injustice. We must truly listen to each other for better iunderstanding. We must together create a world where all people will be free.

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha-olam, al hagefen v'al p'ri hagefen

Blessed are Thou, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.

(Drink the last cup of wine; close the door)
