    This explanation also answers a question that has always bothered me: Why does the Torah remind us of, require that we remember, and associate Mitzvos (commandments) with the Exodus from Egypt in many more places than it does with the Giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai, an event of far greater revelation?
    And why, of all the things we are commanded to remember continuously, only the Exodus includes a command us conduct a yearly ceremony on Seder Pesach (Passover night) in which we RELIVE and RE-EXPERIENCE the event to remember?
    One answer is: As Rabbi Shafran wrote – without the Exodus from Egypt, there is nothing.
