here we use keynote and slideshare to tell a simple story about a group of people who have been banished from their land in a hurry. it is all about the story: their exodus and the redemption they are able to find, led by moses, and above all by god, to establish their voice and presence in the kingdom. the jews were the original slaves and so we sing "these songs of freedom" throughout the night. the original version of this was prepared last year on the eve of my son jacob's bar mitzvah. i hope that our family continues to tweak and revisit and revise this as the years go by.
