"Tateh,   teach me everything about Pesach...all the laws, the customs, the rituals...everything! I want to learn it all!"

The Wicked Child

(Enters and Stands, glaring at the leader. He is angry and full of contempt.)

"Dachau, Mumbai, terrorism, murder. What good have all your pious prayers done you?! To hell with your ritual, and to hell with you!"

(He sits.)

The Simple Child

(Enters, walks over and stands beside the leader. She is curious and perhaps a bit confused.)

" Tateh, what does it mean?"

(The leader responds:)

"Come, sit with us and I'll explain it to you."

(She sits.)

The Child Who Doesn't Know How to Ask
