Happy Passover

Tonight the Passover holiday begins. We will be having a special meal called a Seder in which we remember the Exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt. Simon made his own Hagaddah (the book which tells the story) at school and I wanted to share the pages here in honor of the holiday

“In every generation a person is obligated to view themselves as if they have left Egypt.”

We say kiddush (the blessing) on the wine / Wash our hands (pages go from right to left).

We dip a vegetable in salt water / We break the middle matzah and [put away] the afikomen (dessert).

We tell the story of leaving Egypt.

We wash our hands and say a bracha (blessing) / We say 2 brachot (blessings) on the matzah and eat it.

We eat the bitter herbs / We make a sandwich of matzah and maror (bitter herbs) and dip it in the charoset (mix of apples, nuts, and wine).

We eat a yom tov (holiday) meal / We find the afikoman and eat it.

We thank Hashem (God) for the meal we ate / We sing the Hallel to praise Hashem.

We sing songs and hope to be in Jerusalem next year.

Happy Passover to those celebrating!
