TRADITION TODAY: We were strangers

Whereas at first every parent simply told the Exodus story in whatever way he or she could, eventually, rather than leave this to the individual, the Sages gave instructions.

The Passover Seder is one of the most observed rituals of Judaism, although not everyone’s Seder follows the prescribed pattern found in the traditional Haggada.

The Seder’s origin is to be found in the Torah’s command, “V’higadeta, And you shall explain to your child on that day, ‘It is because of what the Lord did for me when I went free out of Egypt’” (Exodus 13:8). When eating matza during the seven days of Passover, we are expected to explain what we do by relating it to the events of the Exodus.
