Seder Hallel: Sha’ar HaRachamim: Paragraph Five

Apr 17th, 2011 by Rabbi Simcha Weinberg in Holidays
“Return, my soul, to your rest; for God has been kind to you.” We are making a promise to our soul that it can return to its source after death in safety and security because, “God has been kind to you,” meaning any suffering of the soul was only for the purpose of allowing it to return to its proper place, “to your rest.” (Sha’ar HaRachamim/Maggid Tzedek)

At this point of the Seder we have reviewed so much of our history with all of its ups and downs that we know that God has been guiding us throughout our history, and that all our suffering has only served to raise us to ever greater heights. It is those heights that we celebrate in this paragraph of the Hallel.
