Songs of Ascent and the Seder There are fifteen steps to the Seder, fifteen verse to Dayeinu and fifteen Psalms that begin "A Song of Ascents." These Psalms were recited by the Levites as they climbed the fifteen steps to the Temple. Is these a lesson -- a word, and idea, a verse, an image -- that connects each Psalm to its corresponding step in the ritual or verse in the poem? Come up with your own interpretation. Extra credit for a question that gets us all talking.
