Exodus 13:8 "And you shall relate to your son on that day"

If something very special happened to you, you would want to tell others about it.

Especially on the date of the event, you would tell the story over and over again each year and share your exciting experience with others.

The story of Pesach commemorates a very special event in the history of the Jewish people.

On Pesach, we became a nation; G‑d led us out of Egypt in order to receive the Torah.

Each year, on Pesach, we are commanded to retell this story.

As we tell the story, we appreciate the great miracles HaShem did for us, selecting us as His chosen people and making us into His nation.
