1. Beis Shamai: One first recites the blessing on the day, and then the blessing on the wine. Beis Hillel: One first recites the blessing on the wine, and then the blessing on the day.
2. Beis Shamai: The blessing is first recited on the holiness of the day, since that is the reason why the wine is being used. Beis Hillel: Since one does not recite Kidush without wine, the blessing on the wine should be recited first.
3. The Seder plate contains Matzah, Maror, Chazeres (that is, Karpas; a vegetable other than Maror is preferably used), Charoses, and two cooked dishes.
4. Tana Kama: It is not a Mitzvah. Rebbi Shimon: It is a Mitzvah.
