2. Why is my Seder different from all the other Seder?
3. Why is my kid different from all the other kids?
4. Why is my life different from all the other lives?
Because we were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt, and God took us out of there with a strong hand
and an outstretched arm!
Yes, my child.
Can I ask you a question?
Why did you put us in Egypt in the first place?
You needed to be there, my child.
I don’t need to be there. I need to be
Where would you like to be instead? Talk to me.
Anywhere but there! The pain is too much!
The differentness too great! The shame too painful!!! Do you love me or do you hate me?!
Always love, my precious one. Trust me when I tell you this is harder for me than for you.
You always say stuff like that!!
You’ll see when you’re on this side of the table, love. You can never fully understand it till then.
It’s too much to take. You have to save me. Take me out of my Egypt!!!!
I will, child. When you’ve learned what you need to learn.
So give me a hint! Throw me a bone! Just give me a cheat! Game over, I surrender.
I can only give you one hint.
Fine! I’ll take it!
I’m in Egypt too. I’m here with you. I’m crying with you. I’m holding your hand. Can you sense that?
Can you try?
I believe you…
