Question: Why is tonight different from all other nights?


Answer: Usually I would do anything to avoid this holiday: roll my eyes

And let myself be dragged to the Seder dinner, with a bad grace.

Tonight I am aching for that privilege.


We spill wine

To remember the plagues of our ancestors

Tonight

We have one of our own.

We toast

Next year in Jerusalem

Next year, together.
