Haggadah Section: -- Four Questions

The matzot are uncovered.

This night is different from all other nights because of our unique celebration of freedom. We eat only matzah to highlight the tale of our hasty exodus from Egypt.

We eat bitter herbs so that we too may sample at least a taste of bitterness.

We dip our bitter herbs twice, once in salt water and once in sweet charoset, as we remember both the salty tears of our ancestors and the sweetness of their hope for freedom.

As a symbol of our comfort, we recline and eat as free men and women.

This night is different from all the other nights because once we were slaves to the Pharaoh in Egypt, but Adonai, our God, took us out with a mighty hand and outstretched arm. If Adonai had not brought our ancestors out of the Egypt, then we, and our children, and our children's children would still be slaves in the land of Egypt. Even if we know the story well and have told it many times, the more we tell it in great details, the more we are to be praised.

This night is also different because once we worshipped idols, but now we worship only Adonai, the One Who is Everywhere.

Baruch HaMakom, Baruch Hu.

Baruch shenaton Torah l'amo Yisrael, Baruch Hu.

Praised be God Who Is Everywhere. Praised be God.

Praised be God who gave the Torah to the people of Israel. Praised be God.
