Shayna Goldberg, 'Celebrating Freedom in a Postmodern Age.' Times of Israel
We were liberated and set free from the slavery of Egypt only to become the servants of God a few weeks later. We were given the freedom to be commanded. The freedom to choose the meaningful life we want to live….the seder night is all about experience. It is full of eating, smelling, and acting, and, ultimately, feeling as if we ourselves left Egypt. It is not hard to understand why Pesach is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays, for experience is often what connects us more to meaning than does doctrine, philosophy or even revelation.
