PAUL GREENBERG: Notes on the Passover seder

Always changing, yet remains the same

By Paul Greenberg

This article was published April 4, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

It began simply and recognizably enough as a cultic ritual presided over by the priests who had charge of what went on in the Temple at Jerusalem. On Passover Eve, pilgrims to the city would consume the paschal lamb they had sacrificed that afternoon while retelling the story of the Exodus from Egypt free of any elaborate prayers and rituals. It must have been quite a party--an all-nighter unrestrained by the accepted tales of yore and open to all possibilities.
