A beloved element of the Passover Seder (feast), the Ma Nishtana is a set of 4 questions traditionally asked by the youngest person present at the Passover meal. The questioner asks why on Passover eve we dip two foods (when we normally do not dip at all), eat matzo (unleavened bread) and maror (bitter herbs) and recline in the manner of ancient nobility.

The Four Questions are recorded in the Mishnah, with their origins in the Biblical command to tell our children the story of Exodus on Passover eve in response to their queries.

The Hebrew lyrics of the Four Questions are among the best-known pieces of Jewish liturgy and are often sung to a traditional tune or chanted in Hebrew with Yiddish translation.
