The Four Questions
This reading allows for much creativity in the text and inclusion of social action themes or questions. Families might permit time for additional questions to be posed to the group, with opportunities for all to answer. Examples might include:
1. Why on this night are some people still enslaved today?
2. Why on this night do so many remain hungry in the world?
3. Why on this night do we invite the hungry and lonely to share our meal?
4. How can we eradicate hunger and homelessness tonight and every night?
A fifth question can be posed: “Why is this night no different from other nights? Because on this night millions of human beings around the world still remain enslaved, just as they do on all other nights. As a celebration of our freedom, we remember those who remain enslaved."
