1 The items on the Passover table are designed to prompt questions from young and old, starting with “Why is this night different from all other nights?” but the seder would not be the same without the people around the table.
As you look around your table tonight, how are you different since you celebrated Passover one year ago? What has changed?
2 The Torah teaches that the first Passover night was celebrated in Egypt, before our ancestors even left the land. Maybe they were celebrating their spiritual liberation even though they would not be physically liberated until the following morning. Or perhaps the lesson is that Passover is, in every generation, always about anticipation of freedom.
How do we teach our children both gratitude for our freedom and responsibility to be allies in the struggle for freedom for oppressed people everywhere?
