 Why is this night not different from any other Seder night that has gone before? And I’m not talking about the menu or the wine list. I am not talking about the usual cast of characters around the table (the in-laws, long-standing friends, newcomers and the odd aunt and uncle) or even the Haggada, which is chanted year after year. All those parts we want to stay the same.

What we want to be different is the feeling that this night, the night, a night of magic and warmth, spirituality and family, should live up to its name. It should have seder (order), not squabbles. It should be full of discussions, not arguments, and engender a feeling of warmth, not discontent.
