Haggadah Section: Introduction

Our Passover meal is called a seder, which means “order” in Hebrew, because we go through 14 specific steps as we retell the story of our ancestors’ liberation from slavery in Egypt.  Haggadah means "telling" in Hebrew; fitting, as it helps us tell the story of Passover.
