The “Mitzvah” of Hametz: Human Creativity, Ingenuity and Desire

The first two chapters of Mishnah Tractate Pesakhim focus on the essence of hametz- leaven bread. The concept is presented on its own and not in relation to or corresponding to matzah. Why are we required to check for hametz? When, why and how should we destroy hametz? What do the rabbis want us to learn about humanity and the relationship to the Divine from this concept? What is the relationship between hametz and rabbinic creativity? Come join us in learning these mishnayot to find out.
