Why is this Pesach different to all the others?

Every Pesach, the youngest member of the family asks “Ma Nishtana? Why is this night different to all the others?”. This year we also ask: “Why is this Pesach different to all the others?”

We mark ‘zeman cherutaynu’ – the time of our freedom – in remembrance of the past, with tears for the present, and full of a defiant hope for the future. #SederSeatForAHostage

As we commemorate the festival of freedom, remember those in captivity. Please join and share our #SederSeatForAHostage campaign. Let us keep the flame of hope alive for the hostages. For more info and resources visit our #SederSeatForAHostage info page
