Why 15 Steps?
Aside for it being Carmello Anthony’s number, the number 15 has a lot of other cool things going for it in Judaism!
Passover always occurs on 15th of Nissan, our sages say it is specifically to teach us that just as the moon gradually grows from the 1rst of the month until the 15th - when it hits fullmoon status – so to the seder needs to be a night of growth as well. 15 always denotes moving up! There were 15 steps to walk up to the Temple. Elevation, my dear Watson!
We start with talking about lowly slavery in Egypt until we reach our high times of freedom (which after 4 cups of wine can get out of control – you know who you are). So enjoy this night of gradual growth to greatness with the #15! Step it up.
