Religious holiday / lifecycle, comment
The book contains the texts of the story on Exodus of the Jews from Egypt and the necessary prayers and blessings for seder in the evening 15th and 16th of nisan on the 1st and the 2nd days of Pesach, respectively. Before each participant of the meal before the seder Haggadah is placed. The most important part of the Haggadah is the reminder about four commandments of the first night of Pesach: Passover sacrifice, matzo and maror, and also about the commandment to tell about the Exodus from Egypt on the first two nights of Passover.
