Why Are We Here?
By Judy Feder
To tell the story of the Exodus
To remember who we are, where we came from, and what is important
To celebrate freedom and be thankful for it
To pray for redemption
To protest against despair
The Haggadah transforms parents into storytellers. My parents bring me into contact with my historical roots, with my grandparents and a world other than me. Whether it is relevant, the child will decide; but the parent must bear witness to a history and a memory that is needed in order to realize that there is a dimension to existence beyond the self. Parents should not determine their children’s future, but they must open for them their past. Source: David Hartman, Jewish philosopher
