Why is this night different from all other nights?

Passover a festival celebrating the Israelites’ liberation from slavery in Egypt! It’s a special time of year when Jewish people gather together to remember and honor their ancestors’ journey from bondage to freedom. More than just a holiday, Passover is an opportunity to reflect on our history and traditions and ask why this night.

Passover is an important event for Jews worldwide, and its history speaks to us all. This night is different from all other nights because it commemorates the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, an ultimate story of liberation. We recall this momentous event by telling our children the story of Passover, which emphasizes its remarkable nature: it was GD who freed his people from slavery and guided them to freedom.

As we sit down at our Seder tables each year, we remember that freedom comes with hard work and sacrifice. We also recognize that this freedom brings with it great responsibility. It is up to us to use our newfound liberty to improve our lives and those of others. By participating in traditional Passover activities.

What Are The Four Questions We Ask On Passover?

The Four Questions, also known as the Mah Nishtanah, are traditionally asked during the Passover Seder by the youngest person present. The questions ask about the unique customs and practices of the Passover Seder and are intended to spark discussion and reflection on the holiday’s significance.

The Four Questions are:

  1. Why is this night different from all other nights?
  2. Why do we eat only unleavened bread (matzah) on this night?
  3. Why do we eat bitter herbs (maror) on this night?
  4. Why do we dip our food twice on this night?
  1. The first question asks about the differences between Passover and other nights, setting the stage for retelling the story of the Exodus from Egypt.
  2. The second question relates to the dietary restrictions of Passover, which prohibit the consumption of leavened bread (chametz) and require the eating of unleavened bread (matzah).
  3. The third question asks about the symbolic significance of bitter herbs eaten to represent the bitterness of slavery.
  4. The fourth question relates to the dipping of food, done twice during the Seder – once in salt water to symbolize tears shed during slavery and once in a sweet mixture to represent the freedom that followed.
