Parsha Hagadol- Acharei Mot

 Kavanah (specific intent) is not a halachic prerequisite for the observance of mitzvos in general. However, some mitzvos do require Kavanah, for example the reciting of the first pasuk of Shma twice a day.  If one does not have the proper frame of mind and intent, he or she has not fulfilled his or her obligation.  The Maharal explains that all of the mitzvos of Pesach are meant to impress in our hearts a feeling of faith and closeness to Hashem, thus these mitzvos require Kavanah.  This is why he explains that we discuss all of the Mitzvos of the seder in a question and answer form. This dialogue allows us to focus on understanding the mitzvos insuring that we will have proper intent when observing them. We have  reached the point when our preparations for Pesach are almost complete.  Let us take the time to prepare ourselves spiritually as we have physically to experience the feeling of freedom that is essential to Pesach's observance. May we merit celebrating next Pesach in Yerushalayim Habenuyah! Good Shabbos and Chag Kasher Vesamayach!
