THE RITE OF THE PASSOVER ACCORDING TO “HAGGADAH”
the main problem statement

Particular editions of “The Passover Haggadah”, as well as its discussion, can differ only in details which have the source in the historic development of the paschal liturgy over the centuries, among Jews living in geographically distant regions of the world. The basic rite of the Passover, given by so many sources, is preserved [1]. Larger differences occur only at the end of the Seder – among Sephardic Jews in the liturgy of Passover are far less different final songs than among Ashkenazi Jews [2].

The Passover Haggadah” allows to preserve the order of the paschal meal (being characterized as a sequence of the liturgical words and actions attributed to successive fourteen parts of the rite) to accomplish the principal liturgical message of the four cups of wine being drunk successively in a determined order. “Haggada” however does not inform, where the liturgical acts of the first cup have their finish and simultaneously the acts of the second cup begin; where the acts of the second cup have their finish and the acts of the third cup begin; where the acts of the third cup have their finish and the acts of the fourth cup begin.

However, analysis conducted by the author of the present publication showed that unambiguous partition is possible – it is presented on the next screen.
