Maggid is considered to be the most important part of the seder because in this part we tell the story of the Exodus and explain the significance of the ritual. The seder was implemented for the purpose of remembering the liberation from Egypt, so we are fulfilling this purpose here. There are three main components of Maggid:

  • Four Questions - traditionally said by the youngest child present
  • Four Children -commentary on the four types of approaches to the questions
  • Telling of the Exodus story including our ancestors slavery in Egypt
