5 Tips to make your Seder meaningful

Thursday, 26 March, 2015 - 11:43 am

The seder is a week away,

Many people are doing their own Seder so i wanted to share a few tips to make it more meaningful.

  1. Tell the story of the Exodus like you are a storyteller telling your child a bedtime story
  2. Prepare and discuss - find something (here) that is meaningful and relevant to you in the haggadah and discuss it  
  3. Invite someone who otherwise wouldn't be at a seder- sponsor them - or let us know by replying to this email and we'll invite them
  4. Get handbaked Shmurah Matzah for the seder night 
  5. Start kiddush after nightfall 8:04 pm in Bel Air - th memories of Staying up late for the seder are never forgotten - don't forget to have the kids nap in the afternoon

I willl share a thought I learnt about the 4 sons that I found meaningful:  

The four sons in the Haggadah are asking the four questions everyone asks on their journey of faith

  • The wise son - Judaism is insane, what are these illogical rules about?
  • The rebellious son - I am worthless - Why do you think what i do makes a difference
  • The simple son - Who needs G-d? if you work hard you will succeed
  • The one who doesn't know how to ask - I just don’t care - i'm apathetic to this whole religion thing what would you answer each child?
