The Four Questions, Explained

Passover is a special time for all of us. It’s a commemorative holiday that pays homage to the Exodus our ancestors made out of Egypt to the Promised land thousands of years ago. It’s a celebration of liberation, a reflection on resilience and of course, a reason to gather around yet another table and talk about yet another group of people that tried to get rid of us. Spoiler Alert: We’re here to stay!

The story of Passover is equal parts mystical, magical and historical… and since our Exodus it’s been celebrated through a unique set of traditions, including the Seder and, of course, The Four Questions that get asked during it!



The Four Questions (or Ma Nishtana) are a central part of the Passover seder and are asked by the youngest person present and serve as a way to engage everyone in the retelling of the story.


The Four Questions are:

1. Why is this night different from all other nights?

2. On all other nights, we eat leavened bread and matzah on this night. Why only matzah?

3. On all other nights, we eat all kinds of vegetables; on this night, why only bitter herbs?

4. On all other nights, we don't dip our food even once, but on this night, why do we dip it twice?

So, if the kinder do a great job … it’s only fair they get a special Tee Shirt to honor their efforts. Grab this shirt and more of our adorable cards, seder table games, magnets, puzzles and more!
