Great perspective on the four sons
Growing up my family used to skip this section of the sedar. No one in our house liked to label. Today, with kids of my own I have always struggled with this section and have brought different interpretations. This one is the best, and feels so honest and accurate. It will be at the center of how we discuss this issue. Thank you for sharing it.
