Simon’s Passover Projects

Thursday, April 21, 2016

Tomorrow night we start the 8 day long holiday of Passover, which celebrates the Jewish people’s Exodus from Egypt. On the first two nights, we have a special meal called the Seder. During the Seder, there are special foods placed on a special Seder plate. Simon made his own plate at school:

Simon also made his own Hagaddah, which is the book we use at the Seder.

“In every generation one must look upon himself as if he personally had gone out of Egypt.”

These are not all of the pages, but some of them! They read from right to left.
