About Seders:

Every year, Jewish people tell and re-tell the miraculous story of the enslaved Israelites exodus from Egypt during a festive meal called a Seder (Say-der). In Hebrew, Seder means order. In other words, a Seder is a structured, home-based ritual that combines a series of choreographed rituals with education, food, singing and storytelling, all in a particular order of stage directions, intentionally designed to engage people of all ages, Seders are held on the first and second night of Passover.
