One of the most memorable elements of any Passover Seder is the asking of the Four Questions (Mah Nishtanah), performed by the youngest person at the table. This year, provide the table with an additional set of questions that will help spur conversation before and after the main event of the telling of the Passover story. These creative prompts focus on a few of the central themes of Passover: freedom, gratitude and faith.

Materials Needed

  • printer
  • scissors or paper cutter

Print

Start by printing the conversation starters. It's best to use the thickest paper possible, but regular printer paper is fine, too. If using regular paper, use a glue stick or double-sided tape to attach the printable onto card stock to avoid rips or tears in the paper. Two conversation starter sheets are included with each print, so print out as many copies as needed.

Cut

Cut out the printables and separate them into two sections. Trim along the tops, bottoms and left/right sides of each to create long rectangles.

Add to Table

Hand out the conversation starters as your guests or family members arrive, or leave one at each place setting. Other ideas include tucking the printables into each Haggadah — the Seder script placed at each person's place setting. Ask those seated with you to take turns answering the questions, or simply leave them out to encourage a natural, thoughtful discussion. Either way, they'll add an extra layer of meaning to an already special, sacred holiday.
