The pall was not lifted until the Haggada performed its mission as a comforter.
That is a glimpse of the world of the Haggada—a wonderful, fantastic world, a kaleidoscopic panorama of enchanting views.
Halacha was the rule of religious praxis, a sort of Directorium Judaicum: Haggada was the result of free religious reflection.
We must be able to answer the latter question before we may venture to classify the folklore of the Haggada.
The Haggada conveys its poetic message in the garb of allegory song, and chiefly epigrammatic saying.
Poets naturally have not been slow to avail themselves of the material stored in the Haggada.
It must, of course, be borne in mind that Halacha and Haggada are not separate works; they are two fibres of the same thread.
