RELIGIOUS SCHOOL UPDATE
From Morah Barbara:
"What a wonderful time our third graders had Monday at our special Passover Seder. Our Seder plate served as an example of all of the special foods we eat which are not eaten on ordinary nights.
We learned the reasons for eating matzoh, as the Jewish people fled Egypt without time to add yeast, which would have made the dough rise. The shank bone reminded us of the lambs the ancient Jews used to offer to G-d. The roasted egg represented the birth of a new season. We ate bitter herbs to remind us of our past life in slavery. The charoset was sweet, representing the sweetness of hope and freedom and looks like the mortar the Jews in Egypt used to build the pyramids. Lastly, the saltwater represented the tears we shed. After sampling all of the foods we were treated to matzoh ball soup and macaroons.
We prayed that those still suffering from oppression in the world will soon be free. We thanked G-d for our freedom and each other for being part of our own, special third grade family at Temple Shalom of the South Bay."
