Much thought was invested in making the Seder night as vivid and inspiring as possible, utilizing this opportunity to bring our heritage alive, so the children could feel like they themselves left Mitzrayim. For many of those who participated in our Seder, it was their first times in their lives that sat at a Seder and ate Matza. For the Afikomen gift the boys took upon themselves to learn Mishanyois by heart and many agreed to put their cell phones away during tefilois.
In Pinsk alone, hundreds participated in the Sedorim until the wee hours of the morning. The Sedorim were adjusted to each group according to their level—as the Hagadah itself exhorts us to tell the story to each child according to where they are. To see how at 3am the children burst out in song with the words (in Russian) Who knows One? I know One! Adin u nas Bog (One is our G-D), u nas Bog, u nas Bog, u nas Bog, u nas Bog, na nebo I zemlya was a very special moment because these words were being said with such energy in these same places where communism prevailed for so many years trying to erase any sense of Emunah in Hashem!!!
