Passover is a time for asking questions. Everyone knows “The Four Questions”, but there is always so much more to think about when it comes to making the holiday and the Exodus meaningful for our lives. What are the journeys that matter most to us, and what can we learn about ourselves through these experiences? We wanted to share with you a very special resource developed by the Global Day for Passover. This year’s study theme is Extraordinary Passages: Texts and Travels, and since the most extraordinary is the passage out of Egypt, it seemed especially fitting to connect them in a text-learning guide for your seder.

The objective of this article is to analyze the significance of the human rights concept in Judaism and its implications in religious education. To begin with we will explain the nature of the concept according to the Jewish perspective, and then demonstrate how we can educate for human rights in the framework of Jewish education, through the case-study of the obligation to remember the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt, and its practical implications as reflected in the Seder—the ceremony conducted during the feast of Passover. Employing Feuerstein’s mediating learning theory will enable us to broaden understanding human rights research and education.

For the first time ever, RAVSAK and Technion - Israel Institute of Technology invite day school students to participate in the Technion Jewish Day School Challenge by building Pesach themed Rube Goldberg machines. Inspired by the Rube Goldberg machine created by Technion students to depict the story of Pesach, the Challenge asks day school students to make the project their own. Teams of students from Jewish day schools are invited to enter the contest by submitting a video of a Rube Goldberg machine that completes the task of revealing a Seder plate. There will be two divisions of the competition: middle school (5th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade).

Idie Benjamin and Dale Sides Cooperman reflect on how we sometimes get derailed from our central goals while working at preparing our school children for Passover. We often spend a great deal of time talking about Passover & its mitzvoth rather than actually experiencing them with our students. They follow with some great examples of how to shift to a real effective experiential Passover curriculum.
