Description

Chazal command us at the Seder night to communicate with our kids and relay Sippur Yetziat Mitzrayim through questions and answers. Far from being a one-sided lecture, Chazal view the Seder evening as an interactive one, with the children actively engaged through questioning and the parents fashioning their responses to suit each child’s queries. Specific rituals are performed at the Seder’s beginning “so that the children will ask”. The gemara even concludes that if a couple has no children, they themselves should recite the story of Yetziat Mitzrayim in Q and A form. Why is the process of Q and A so important and crucial for the Seder? And what can it teach us about parenting?
