Where’s the Passover story?

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/david_suissa/article/wheres_the_passover_story_20080418

It's one of the great mysteries of the Jewish tradition. Every year, Jews around the world gather around a seder table to retell the story of our people's liberation from slavery. You can read a thousand articles, talk to a thousand rabbis, and they'll all say the same thing: At the Passover seder, we retell the story of the Exodus. There's only one problem with this statement: It's not really true.
