Hello dear readers, In my last post, I wrote about some of the reasons that I love the late-late show, also known as the hallel-nirtzah portion of the seder. Next, I will talk about two of my favorite songs in the whole seder. In this post I will write a bit about Echad Mi Yodea, ...

Hello dear readers, Pesach is one of the most popular Jewish holidays, and everyone loves the seder nights.
