After the seder

The story of freedom and heated discussion about if it really happened and if that really matters in the long run provides the best nourishment for Jews. Much more than the matzoball soup and harosets that everyone loves, it is the conversation around all those tables that keeps us special.

No matter which of the children you are, the wise, the wicked, the simple or the silent one, the story will convey the message that freedom is sweet. The discussion may turn to politics or worldly issues or it might turn inward to individual or family struggles. It is this communication and the connection of those around our table to those around other tables that makes Pesach the favorite annual event in our families and our community..
