Abstract

This essay tries to uncover the reason for the omission of Moses from the Passover haggadah. According to my interpretation, the editors of the haggadah expressed an opinion on an issue which already occupied the authors of the Biblical stories. Integrating Moses’ name intensively in the haggadah may have blurred the viewpoint that wishes to attribute miracles solely to God.
