The Taboo Against ‘Next Year in Jerusalem’ in the American Haggadah

Hosted By: Union for Traditional Judaism (UTJ)

Brandeis University professor and acclaimed scholar Jonathan Sarna will explore one of the most commonly practiced features at the end of the Haggadah—the joyous singing of L’shana Haba B’Yerushalayim, Next Year in Jerusalem. Professor Sarna will show the depths, controversies, and nuances of this practice that appears so natural and straightforward.
