We have come to the close of our Seder service.

For Jewish ritual, including the ritual of the Seder, is really Jewish philosophy. That is why we avoid doing the ritual just for the sake of the ritual; instead, we concentrate on understanding the meaning of the ritual act – the underlying philosophy the act comes to represent.

Once again we have recited the age old epic of Israel’s liberation from bondage, and have rededicated ourselves to the cause of man’s freedom from tyranny and oppression.

As we celebrated this festival tonight, so may we celebrate it, all of us together, next year again, in joy, in peace, in freedom and in Jerusalem!
