(LEADER) The formal telling of the story of Passover is framed as a discussion with lots of questions and answers. Traditionally, the youngest person at the seder asks four questions. These questions will be answered through our telling of the Passover story.

(Youngest Participant) Why is this night different from all other nights?

1. On all other nights we eat both leavened bread and matzah. Tonight we eat only matzah. Why?

2. On all other nights we eat all kinds of vegetables, but tonight we eat bitter herbs. Why?

3. On all other nights we aren't expected to dip our foods in others. Tonight we dip twice. Why?

4. On all other nights we eat either sitting normally. Tonight we recline. Why?
