Description

Children play a central role at the seder. Their questions, comments and insights are an integral part of the mitzvah of sippur yetziat Mitzraim, the mitzvah of recounting the exodus from Egypt. One of the challenges of conducting a seder is that the seder must be conducted at night. Due to the late hour, it is often difficult to keep younger children engaged. In this article, we will explore a passage of the Talmud that provides one method of engaging the children. We will see various interpretations of this Talmudic statement which not only provide explanation to the particular method, but provide a general approach to keeping children engaged at the seder.
