At sundown Wednesday, May 14, Jews worldwide will begin the celebration of Passover. Outside of Israel, the first two days of the holiday begin with a Seder (Jewish holidays begin in the evening). In Israel, it’s one day. During the Seder, we tell the story of the Exodus from Egypt.
But the Haggadah, the book that acts as the script for the Seder, only mentions Moses, the key human figure in the biblical Exodus story, once!. Yes, THAT Moses… Prophet, miracle maker, former tennis player, and the prince of Egypt …got royally screwed. How did I know he was a tennis player? The Bible says Moses served in the courts of Pharaoh.
Almost totally leaving Moses out of the Haggadah was not a biblical command. Nowhere in the book of Exodus does it say, “Thus sayeth the Lord, when you remember this day ‘ixnay on the Moses stuff.
