But more than just tell it, Jews are bidden to <em>relive</em> it. We engage in ritual and discussion and debate, until each of us feels that we've made a journey ourselves. It's a singular, time-stopping evening. But it can take a very long time.<p>And while there are a few ceremonial bites along the way — a bit of matzo, some horseradish — the actual "meal" part of the Seder may not happen for hours.
