Still Pure

One might think that the order in which we list the first two stages of the Seder should be reversed. The Seder should start with Urchatz so that we can remove our impurities and then we should drink the wine.

Admor Rebbe Avraham From Sokotzov the author of the Avnei Nezer answers that in Yetzias Metzrayim we were redeemed even though we weren’t worthy.

For this same reason we start the seder with the Kadeish and not Urchatz. To show that regardless of the shameful things that we take part in during the year, we are still holy and fit for the redemption.
