“For many, the purpose of the Passover story is to remind us of our history, foster group solidarity and Jewish identity, celebrate the strength and unity of the Jewish family. The Seder is a powerful ethnic experience, with unique foods, its own language and vocabulary, a range of colorful symbols and an array of intimate emotional strands of Jewishness that weave themselves together into a mosaic of being part of a special people and tradition. For others, the Passover story is a constant reminder to renew efforts in achieving freedom for the oppressed everywhere-its message is a universal and political one that touches the aspirations of all groups who suffer the pain of enslavement. These purposes, important as they are, should indeed be incorporated in our Seder experience. Yet, I believe that the overriding objective of this annual enactment is to tell a story that astonishes, amazes us, and in the midst of this experience of wonder, to fi nd in our hearts and voices the desire to sing praises, articulate our gratefulness, in the Presence of the divine.”
