Soloveitchik, widely known as the Rav. For Rabbi Soloveitchik, the Passover Seder is not simply a formal ritual or ceremonial catechism. Rather, the Seder night is endowed with a unique and fascinating quality, exalted in its holiness and shining with a dazzling beauty. It possesses profound experiential and intellectual dimensions, both of them woven into the fabric of halakhic performance.
