Passover Resources

The team at Temple Beth El has put together resources for you to experience Passover

online and at home! Below, you'll find our complete downloadable resource list, split into four sections. The first provides links to a few online and/or easily downloadable haggadot for you and/or your family. The second is a collection of creative seder supplements. The third is a compilation of Passover activities, drawn from a number of sources, that offer you the opportunity to create a Pesach experience in addition to (or perhaps this year, instead of) the traditional seder setting. And finally, we have included some resources on how to use various technologies and platforms to enhance your experience. We hope you find these resources useful.

A PASSOVER KIDS ACTIVITY

What'cha Gonna Grab?

Supplies: One paper or plastic bag per person, a way to keep time

  • Moses is getting ready to lead the Jews out of Egypt! What are you going to grab to take with you?

  • Set the timer (5 minutes) and tell players they need to grab what they think is most important to take with them. No limit on the number of items, as long as they fit in the bag!

  • After the timer “dings!” spend time sharing what everyone chose and why.

A PASSOVER KIDS ACTIVITY

Overnight in the Desert

Supplies: Sheets, blankets, pillows, beads, cooking pots, etc.

  • Everyone has escaped with Moses but it’s now time to rest for the night. 

  • Using the supplies you’ve provided, as well as other items they find around the house, work together to create a sukkah – a temporary shelter.

  • Optional: Dress up in Egyptian clothing (a towel around one’s waist) or desert garb (robe, along with a towel placed on one’s head). Offer a matzah snack.

  • Leave up the desert home for a bit so your child can play! 

A PASSOVER KIDS ACTIVITY

Pesach Scavenger Hunt

Supplies: Offer a page of clues-of-items to find around the house such as:

  • At the seder, we are supposed to recline in the spirit of free people. What would make your reclining more comfortable?

  • Karpas are green vegetables that remind us of springtime. Find one thing we could eat as karpas.

  • We eat unleavened bread on Pesah . Find a box of “unleavened bread” (do  not open it!)

  • List five complaints you think the Jews would have moaned about in the desert.

 

Online Haggadot

01

HAGGADOT.COM

This is the veritable Mecca (or should I say Jerusalem?) of online haggadot - you can create your own or peruse their Haggadah Library.

02

onetable's seder guide

While not a complete seder itself, this guide includes a reading or poem for each of the sections of the seder.

JEWBARRASMENT-FREE SEDER

 From JewBelong. A little sassy and irreverent, and full of opportunities for seriousness and silliness. You may need to enter your email address to access the haggadah, but it’s all free and the haggadah is fully downloadable.

05

Created by Rabbi Rachel Barenblatt, aka the “Velveteen Rabbi.” Her haggadah was the first I (Rabbi Klass) ever used to lead a seder, back in 2006 around a communal dorm room table in Dublin, Ireland when it was one of the only haggadot I could find online! It is comprehensive and fully editable; she fully invites you to take what you like and ignore the rest.
