Definition Thursday

Every Thursday I will post an unsual (not well-known) word which has had some significance on Christian thought (this will include anything from people to biblical ideas to anti-biblical ideas). I want you, my readers, to guess the meaning. On Saturdays, I will post the correct definition or meaning. My reasons for doing this are twofold: 1) it allows me to become familiar with words I would not otherwise, and 2) I pray it will draw my heart and yours closer to God on our way to becoming more Christ-like.

This week's word:

Hallel

(I can already see you scrambling to dictionary.com to find the answer, this is not allowed!!!)
(This week I'm being easy on you, look for harder words in the coming weeks)

I KNOW! I KNOW! At least I think I do. I don't want to ruin it for everyone else.Can I give a hint? I had a jewish Messianic friend, she taught me this. It is something done after the seder.Am I getting hot?

Well, seeing your the only one who has guessed, I'll grant you your hint. Yes, it is something that is done after seder (actually, during seder). I believe it is right before the Nirtzah (the partaking of the fourth cup of thanksgiving and hope). Eventhough I am not a practicing jew, I do still know some of their traditions.

I wasn't thinking of this as much as it's common meaning.
