We started our studies about Passover this past Sunday. And a great place to start was with the question: How did we (the Jews/Israelites/Hebrews) end up in Egypt? After we figured that out, and in lieu of music, we listened to Louis Armstrong (et al) perform the song Go Down Moses, which as you likely know, was written by African slaves in America.
After reading about all 10 Plagues, we reenacted the last two plagues with some vigorous packing and matza making, which involved about 10 minutes of running around the class.
HOMEWORK: Please be sure your daughter/son reads the Passover chapter in the Jewish Holidays book – the more familiar everyone is with the Passover holiday, the sooner we can move on to our seder preparations.
Wishing you a good week,
