‘Magid’ (teller) and Passover greetings

By Limor Shiponi

Here again comes that time of the year when Jews all over the world sit to the seder table and fullfil the ancient order of telling the story – the story of Exodus. The script is called the ‘Haggadah’ (the telling) and the teller is ‘Magid’. It is interesting to note that these words are devoted to ‘telling’ and the telling script as an event, not only as a script. The spoken word is high practice in Judaism since according to our belife the orderly world was created by utterance as mentioned in the opening of the Bible: “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.” (Genesis 1/3)
