Thank you so much to E.L.'s grandma, Judy, who came in and taught us about Passover. We learned that people of the Jewish faith celebrate Passover as a commemoration of their liberation by God from slavery in ancient Egypt and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses.

We learned a bit about slavery and freedom ( in a very child-friendly way)

We coloured the word SLAVERY in sad colours:

 and we coloured the word FREEDOM in happy colours:

When the Jews were freed, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread dough to rise. So that is why matzo (unleavened bread)is eaten during Passover. Judy gave us each a piece of matzo to try and everyone wanted more!

Judy read us a story of The Matzah Man (like the Gingerbread Man)

We were able to make our own Matzo Men:

Judy lent us her Sammy Spider book to read. We love Sammy's adventures!

Thank you so much, Judy for sharing your knowledge with us! We always have so much fun when you come. And thank you to E.L. for sharing his Bubbe with us for the afternoon :)
