Happy Passover!

As we're getting closer to Pesach (Passover) I don't think I'll have time to update the website too often. Hopefully I will be able to post a few Pesach insights and thoughts before Pesach and throughout the eight days to make it more meaningful for you. In the meantime, check out the links below for great Pesach websites! Wishing you and your families a kosher and happy Pesach!

Seder Games!

Here are some great games to play at the Seder or anytime on Pesach!

This is an interesting game that doesn’t take a lot of work to prepare. Go around your house and find different objects such as an egg, a stuffed animal, or any objects you would like to use. Put all of your collected items in a bag. At the seder, pass around the bag and have each person take one object out of the bag without looking. Now have the person tell how each object is related to the story of Passover. 

Before the seder, write down on different sheets of paper people or things connected to the story of Passover, such as frogs, Moses, lice, etc. In the middle of the seder, have someone put on a scarf or bandana and tape one of the objects/ people on the scarf, so everyone can see except the person wearing the scarf. Now the person wearing the scarf tries to figure out who or what he is by asking yes or no questions. If they figure it out quickly give them a small prize.

This game is like charades. Have different sentences from the Haggadah prepared ahead of time on sheets of paper. Each person randomly selects a piece of paper. Then that person acts out the sentence he has been given without talking. Everyone else then tries to guess what he is acting out. The person may use his hands to say how many words are in the sentence, and he can indicate that words or sentences rhyme by touching his ear.
