The Seder Night is a call for change. We have to move out of our comfort zone, to expose ourselves without the protective envelope of our daily routines, to sense discomfort — to change. And a Seder Night marked by fifty years of rule over another people calls for an especially profound change. We can not wash our hands clean, as if to say "our hands have not done and our eyes have not seen." This time, we will use the washing of the hands as an opportunity for contemplation. We will clean our hands without a blessing, but with awareness — we shall recall what we have done over the last year to further the cause of liberty for all. Did we act rightfully? Did we do enough?
