We are supposed to feel as if we actually left Egypt. How is it possible to achieve this? Three approaches.
The idea of Yetziat Mitzrayim has to be so real to us to the point that we can say “I actually witnessed it”, we know it’s true as if we were there because we have an unbroken chain to something that happened to an entire nation. Something that happened in front of an entire nation is very hard to falsify.
