|"Ha Lachma Anya": Rav Moshe Shternbuch - Now You Invite Guests, After Kiddush?|
In the opening of Magid we start with Ha Lachma Anya where we mention the bread of affliction that we eat and then we go on to invite guests to our Seder. Isn't this a strange time to invite our guests? The streets are empty,invitation who is still waiting for an invitation? Besides, we've already made kiddush. Shouldn't we invite our guest before kiddush... and karpas... and yachatz?
To top it all off we tell him that he should not feel like a pauper at the rich homeowner's table. "Hashata Avdei", we are all really slaves in this galus. "L'Shana Haba B'Arya D'Yisroel", next year we should all rejoice together in Eretz Yisroel.
