Educational Resources for Passover


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 Friday night, April 22, 2016.

The Jewish Trivia Quiz - Passover Trivia
www.jewish-trivia.com

In which Hebrew month is Passover celebrated ?
Why do we eat matzah during Passover ?

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 quiz. There are two levels of questions, two timer settings. Both kids and adults will find it enjoyable.
