Tonight is the celebration of Passover. Passover is a major Jewish festival that celebrates the freedom attained by the Hebrew people following their exodus from Egypt where they had been slaves for either 430 years or 210 years, depending on the scholarly conclusions one follows. During the seder tonight children learn the importance of telling and re-telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt.
Here are some Passover books that we didn’t list last year. Consider borrowing them from the library or purchasing them below to prepare children for Passover.
