So I hope those of you who were interested kept going even when I forgot to post reminder links. :-) Seriously, the translations through 106 are on dafcast.net, and if you were doing a page a day you would have run out by now. And the next bunch of pages remain on the tangent of kiddush and havdalah --- an important tangent, but the point here is to enrich our sedarim.

So I have jumped ahead and just posted daf 114. And I learned something (or, since I did this a few years ago, I'll assume that I re-learned something that I had forgotten) about the answer to the third of the four questions.

On all other nights, we don't dip our food even once. On this night, why do we dip twice? )

I realized that even though I've been putting these behind lj-cuts, for those who read my blog through an RSS reader they're still getting the full text of each page. Since my translations are posted over on the Dafcast anyway, for those who are joining me on this page-a-day-until-Passover journey, today we're up to Pesachim 103, which starts a digression on the subject of Havdallah.

Enjoy!

The last chapter of tractate Pesachim deals with the laws of seder night. I thought I'd learn them next, and why not share what I'm learning?

Pesachim 99b-100b --- that one should enter Pesach with an appetite to enjoy the seder, and some laws about kiddush )
