A poor magician causes all the fixings of a seder to appear out of nowhere for a poor couple. Before they eat anything though, they check with their rabbi to make sure it is ok. He explains how they can tell if it is, but by the time they return, the magician, who, they now realize, is Elijah, has gone. So, if they had not doubted and checked with their local source of Jewish law, would they have broken bread (well, matzah) with Eliyahu HaNavi? Did they miss a chance to bring the Messiah? And why did they refuse to go to a neighbor's house and allow the neighbor the opportunity to perform the mitzvah of welcoming guests? ( )
