In the introduction to our Seder, we said that each of us must bring ourselves, our lives, our experiences and our wisdom to the table. It isn't enough to read the story of our ancestors. We need to contibute our questions and our insights.

Haggadah means The Telling. Not the reading. Maggid means The Storyteller. Not the reader. So what is your Passover story? How do you connect your own life and experience to the story of Moses, Pharaoh, Miriam, slavery, oppression, freedom, and the very human ability to overcome obstacles and even to overthrow tyranny?

The longest Seder is the one that doesn't engage us. You won't regret taking the time to talk and to listen. Not just to read and sing.
