Passover:  We read from the Haggadah and tell and retell, in ways understandable to the most and least knowing among us, the story of our Exodus from Egypt after 400 years of slavery. For eight days we eat unleavened bread as did our forebears who did not have time to wait for their bread to rise before setting off for 40 years to wander in the desert.  We sample bitter herbs, dip parsley in salt water, savor charoset (a combination of apples and honey) to remind us of our labors, and recount  the ten plagues that G!d inflicted on our oppressors.
