Haggadah

The Haggadah is a text establishing the order in which the Passover Seder or dinner is conducted. There are several moments to be accomplished during a Passover dinner and they are all comprised in the Haggadah. There are several steps to be respected during a Passover dinner, such as the cleaning of the hands, the essential moments when four cups of wine should be drank, the moment of blessing of the food on the Seder plate, the breaking of the matzah and the telling of the Exodus story, to name but a few. Each of these steps is not a casual one, and refers to a specific element of the Passover tradition that needs to be respected, or to the moments spent by the Jews in their slavery in Egypt.
