Seder

June 20, 2006

[Plural Sedarim]; Literally, Order; having a well-defined structure; thus, the following two meanings: 1) the Festive Meal eaten on the night of Pesach, which has this name because what is eaten and the ceremonies performed at this meal follow a precise order; 2) one of the Six Orders of the Mishnah, into which the Mishnah was divided by Rabbi Judah the Prince.
