The Afikoman

Afikoman is called ‘Tzafun’ because it grants us the power to illuminate the Yetzer Hara (Evil Inclination) which is also called ‘Tzafon’ (Yoel 2:20).

The Afikoman has no taste. This teaches us that we should not attempt to reason with the Yetzer Hara, to ‘taste’ its arguments in order to refute them. The best approach is to be unrelenting and uncompromising: ‘I will do the right thing! There is simply no other option.’
