The Real Question

We’ve already asked four questions during Seder.  We marched out of Egypt, once again, on our way to something called חירות, cherut, freedom. We’re about to witness the most dramatic Divine intervention into the natural world, the splitting of the sea.

The question, renewed each year, is why did God bring us out of Egypt?  What are we, both individually and as the Jewish Nation, expected to do with the immense responsibility of our new freedom?

(Apologies to readers in Israel for whom this arrived too late for the final day of Pesach. Of course, we need to keep asking this question even after the festival is concluded.)
