Uncover the top Matzah and lift the plate for all to see. The recital of the Passover Story begins with the following words:

Read Together

This is the bread of affliction that our fathers ate in the land of Egypt. All who are hungry let them come and eat.  All who are needy let them come and celebrate the Passover with us. Now we are here, but next year may we be in the land of Israel*. Now we are slaves, but next year may we be free men and women.

The plate is put down, the Matzoh is covered and the second cup of wine is filled.  The youngest person asks the four questions.
