Each year, as I review the Halachot of Pesach, I am bitter about many of the lies I was taught as a child.
One of the more bitter moments though, is of my teachers preaching to us that “Maror” is synonymous with horseradish.
As I look at the words of the Poskim again, it is obvious that “Chassah” – lettuce is the real Maror.
What will we do to ensure that others don’t force their traditions on our children?
