The Passover Seder and the Haggadah
Passover is the most popular and well observed Jewish holiday. People gather together to tell the biblical story of freedom at Passover Seders. Each symbol on the seder plate reminds us of the Biblical story of Freedom. In this lesson, you will learn about the items on the Seder plate, two Passover songs from the Haggadah, and tips on where to hide the Afikomen.

There are many types of haggadah’s. Which one you use is not important. The important thing is to tell the story of Exodus each year as “if you were there and as if you were escaping slavery and going to freedom.”
