The Passover Seder, which blends storytelling with the eating and drinking of symbolic foods, may be the world's oldest continuous ritual.

Many people think rituals are fossilized, archaic, superstitious and pointless.

But not only is the Passover Seder packed with insights and teachings relevant to every generation, it has proven itself effective for 3,000 years, keeping the Jewish people alive by enabling us to relive our exodus from Egypt year after year, and providing for us the gift of knowing who we are, where we have been, and to where we are heading.

Happy Passover - חג פסח כשר ושמח!
