The Four Questions are an important part of the Passover seder, highlighting the ways in which Passover customs and foods distinguish the holiday from other times of the year. Each of the four answers explains why something is done differently during this holiday.

Rabbi Evan Jaffe of the Flemington, NJ, Jewish Community Center visited Matheny a few days before Passover and explained the Four Questions to a group of Matheny students and adult patients. He also led them in Passover songs and prayers.
