Why don't Chabad Chassidim say ''chasal sidur pesach'' at the end of the seder?

    Why should they? – Double AA Apr 11 '16 at 6:02
  • Because everyone else does – menachem Apr 11 '16 at 6:04

    That's not true. Here's a Haggada that doesn't have it mechon-mamre.org/i/3510.htm I've seen many others like that too. Without justification, you can just as easily ask why they don't sing "take me out to the ballgame." Most Rishonim in fact don't list it in what happens at the Seder. Nearly all their lists just end with the 4th cup. Why should Chabad follow this newfangled custom? – Double AA Apr 11 '16 at 6:04

    Here you can find plenty of Haggadot from 500-700 years ago. Tell me how many have "chasal sidur pesach" at the end hebrewmanuscripts.org – Double AA Apr 11 '16 at 6:23

    What the site is looking for is a better justification of the question. So if you wrote: Every other Hagada currently used for the Seder that I have seen includes Chasal Sidur Pesach except for the Chabad one. Why do they not say it? It would go over better. See here and other related questions on meta. – Yishai Apr 11 '16 at 15:53

Like is stated explicitly in the Rebbe's commentary at the end of the Haggadah to this question, it is because like with all the Moadim, the influence of the order of Pesach radiates eternally into each and every day of the year. It is not finished and it does not cease.

  • So why does everyone else say it @Yaacov Deane – menachem Apr 14 '16 at 2:28
  • @Menachem You should direct that to those who say. Ask them what they have been taught. – Yaacov Deane Apr 14 '16 at 2:31

    @menachem Probably because the Seder is finished. Yom Kippur should influence everything you do that year, but no one keeps on fasting when it's done. – Double AA Apr 28 '16 at 5:02
