How does this seder thing work?

First off, welcome.



Whether this is your first, your fortieth or your last seder, there is little for you to do but participate and enjoy.

Tonight we will remind ourselves of our most essential gift, the gift of freedom.

Tonight we will eat together and talk.

More specifically for our newcomers, tonight we will do the following:

We will read through this book in order.

More than halfway through, we will eat a big meal.

When we are through, we will come back to this book and finish up.

We ask you to exhale and get patient.

The gift of freedom is so enormous, can we all offer some time to celebrate and remember it?

If you are willing, so are we.

There is no need to rush or squirm.

This is a celebration.
