Passover Educational Resources and 292 Passover Videos


Hi Everyone!

Passover is a Jewish holiday, of Biblical origin, marking the
birth of the Jews as a people and their emergence as a unique
nation in history, devoted to G-d's will. It celebrates the
liberation of the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt
over 3000 years ago, under the leadership of Moses.

This year Passover begins on Monday night, April 14, 2014.

The Jewish Trivia Quiz
www.jewish-trivia.com

Passover Trivia
In what Hebrew month is Passover celebrated ?
Why do we eat matzah during Passover ?
How old was Moshe's mother when she gave birth to Moshe ?
How long did the Jews' exile in Egypt last ?
Where did the Jews live in Egypt ?
How many days did the plague of blood last ?
What happened to Pharoh's daughter, Batiya, when the
Jewish people left Egypt ?

The above questions are examples from the multiple choice
Flash quiz. There are two levels of questions, two timer settings.
Both kids and adults will find it enjoyable.

www.jr.co.il/humor/passover.htm

98 Passover humor files ranging from funny jokes and
stories to song parodies. You may want to print several of
them before Passover and distribute copies to your family and
guests between the seder meal courses. Both kids and adults
will find them entertaining (and sometimes educational).

To learn more about Passover, I posted on my website
118 site links, ranging from from laws and customs to games and
recipes. Site languages include English, Hebrew, Russian,
Spanish, French, Portuguese, German and Italian.
