The answer is at the bottom of the page!
Ways to engage at your Seder:
With Pesach right around the corner we start preparing for the Seders. Check out this AWESOME activity and ways to engage at your Passover Seder. As a teen, your voice can be heard and you can help start intentional conversations about current events at your Passover Seder.
Passover Essay Contest:
One of the Jewish peoples most sacred and widely observed holidays, Passover, commemorates the story of Israelites’ departure from ancient Egypt. In your opinion, is Passover too commercialized? If it is one of the most important Jewish holidays, is it given enough attention? Write an essay that is no longer than 1,000 words that answers these questions.
Submit all essays to Elaine Prigal by April 19th. Winners will be announced by April 21st. The winner will get free pizza on the first night of TBAHigh 2020-2021!
I Have a Voice:
As we get closer to Passover, we remember how Moses stood up to Pharaoh to save the Jewish people. Each one of us has the same power to create change in our world!
The song “I Have a Voice” reminds us:
We have a voice
Our voice is powerful
Our voice can change the world!
* Special Rap by Benny P included in this awesome edition!
Root vegetables are an important part of the Passover meal, in part because these hardy vegetables are easily grown in Eastern and Western Europe and Russia—where approximately two-thirds of the modern-day Jewish population originated. These potato yogurt cupcakes are a healthy and delicious treat to be shared during this special Jewish holiday.
On Passover we eat so many different foods! There are so many new and yummy recipes we get to try each year. One of the important foods we eat at the seder is Charoset. It is meant to symbolize the brick and cement that the Jewish people used to build the pyramids in Egypt.
Check out this video of Mr. Rosenstock (Machane TBA Cooking Specialist) making his version of Charoset. Here’s the recipe.
We want you to be part of the TBAHigh leadership! Help shape programming for TBAHigh and apply to be on the Executive Board of the Student Council! Application deadline is Sunday, April 19.
