REMEMBER THIS DAY, when you went out of the Narrow Places, out of the house of bondage, for with a mighty hand, God took you out of here. Exodus 13:3.

I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts. Psalms 119:45.

We shall live at last as free men on our own soil. Theodore Herzl

Freedom often improves with order; thus the Seder: table-setting, candle-lighting, sacred-making, hand-washing, vegetable-dipping, Matzoh-breaking, question-asking, story-retelling, hand-washing again, motzi/matzoh/maror/Hillel-sandwich-making, EATING!, afikomen-finding, grace-reciting, Elijah/Miriam-welcoming, singing and - having consumed four or five or more cups of wine - hoping for more freedom.
