On Pesach, we are commanded to tell the story of the exodus from Egypt to our children. However, there are different ways that people choose to do this, depending on their focus and perspective. Here are three common approaches that I have encountered:
The Story of Exodus This approach follows the halacha and the passukim that instruct us to recount the events of how Hashem took us out of Egypt with signs and wonders. This approach emphasizes the miracles and wonders that Hashem performed for us, and how He chose us as His nation at Sinai.
The Story of the Jewish People This approach broadens the scope of the seder night to include other historical events that have shaped our identity and destiny as a people. This approach relates the exodus to other times of oppression and redemption, such as the Holocaust, pogroms, Zionism and Israel. This approach also connects the seder night to current issues and challenges that we face as Jews in different parts of the world.
The Lomdus of Seder This approach delves into the deeper meanings and implications of the seder night, by analyzing its laws and customs from various sources and perspectives. This approach explores questions such as why we break the middle matzah, and is it a din Gavra or Cheftaza (do I need to break it or it must be broken). This approach also compares different opinions and practices among different authorities and communities.
Each of these approaches has its merits. I would love to find sources for point two and three. Also If there are other themes that people have (and adult geared seder) I would love to hear them.
