Breaking the ego

The Talmud (Pesachim 85b) says that through the Hallel that is recited during the seder we have the ability to “break the roof.” ““The Korban Pesach was only a kezayis, but from the hallel that was recited over it, roofs were broken.”

A roof is something above us is analogues to ego that causes us to feel greater than we really are.

Through the recitation of the Hallel, by reciting the praise of the almighty, we realize how small and insignificant we really are, thus breaking our sense of ego.
