Transcript: Passover created and presented by: Claire McMahon & Abigail Anderson Passover is a Jewish holiday celebrating the freedom of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Moses saved the Israellites from harsh labor that they were forced to complete. The name "Passover" refers to how God passed over the Israelites' homes during the slaying of all the first-borns in Egypt. The Israelites covered their doors with lamb's blood so that God would pass over them. The Israelites ate what they could and left quickly. The eating of unleaven bread symbolizes that the Israelites were in a hurry to leave Egypt, and didn't have time for their bread to rise. The bread is called Matzah. The Hebrew word seder means order. The seder is usually celebrated in the home, although community seders are also popular. The Haggadah is a book containing the all the procedures for the seder meal.The focus of the Haggadah is the Exodus, although Moses's name is mentioned only once, so he won't be idolized. Jewish people celebrate Passover by eating the same foods the Israelites would have eaten. They eat lamb and unleaven bread. One of the most important concepts of the seder is that each person gains personal comprehension of the origional exodus experience. Passover is the oldest continuouly celebrated Jewish festival. Jewish rabbis developed the seder meal ritual for Passover based on passages from the Torah. The Torah is made up of the first five books of the Bible — Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. The main focus of Passover is from the book of Exodus. The Passover is one of the most well-known Jewish holidays because it ties in with Catholicism. Jesus was Jewish and was celebrating Passover on the night before he was crucified (Last Supper). During Catholic masses, unleavened bread and wine are served as a symbol of Jesus, but in a way it is also a symbol of Passover. The main focus of Passover, for Jews, is the Exodus. nh b'psnfb'n'nv'lb /lf slfbhjkfmvngkf,kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk 10 Facts About Passover

Transcript: Pesach or Passover in English is a feast eaten in a particular order celebrating the exodus of Egypt There's one thing missing: Salt water - which represent the tears of the Israelites, shed during their hard slave labor Matzah: The traditional unleavened bread eaten for the 8 days of passover. It is this way as in the hurry to leave Egypt the Israelites didn't have time to let their bread rise. What is it? During the seder we drink 4 glasses of wine. Wine is a symbol of freedom, so it is fitting that we drink it at this meal. This reasoning can be seen in many places but the one that is most traditional is known that each glass is 1) "I shall take you out..." (of Egypt) 2) "I shall rescue you..." (from Slavery) 3) "I shall redeem you..." (from evil) 4) "I shall bring you..." (to the land of freedom) However, in years past we drink grape juice, as it still constitutes the fruit of the vine without the legal issues that the university would have to deal with. This book contains the order of the service, it's called a Haggadah. It's only used once a year for the sole purpose of conducting this meal. It tells of the story of passover throughout. To make things more inclusive, the service is vastly conducted in English, we give everyone present a chance to participate by reading a paragraph or two going around the table. Supporting the Jewish Community within our campus and nearby community by providing this traditional meal on campus for $1,150 Shank Bone: Symbol of the offering given to make sure that the jewish houses were passed over by the 10th plague. What can SGA do? Karpas or Bitter Herbs: Karpas backwards in Hebrew means slavery, this is to remind us of our slavery and that we don't want to go back there, this is dipped in the salt water. Egg: The symbol of life what we are most grateful for at this season. Which is what this festival celebrates, and therefor this represents it. Charoset: Traditionally made of apples and nuts this paste is meant to represent the mortar that was used to build for the Egyptians during the slavery Marror or Horseradish: This represents the lesson of mercy we learned, when freed. This is something we must not forget and therefor are reminded yearly. The Passover Seder


Transcript: After the Egyptians were held in slavery for many generations, God sent to the pharaoh, a message through Moses. He said "Send forth My people, so that they may serve Me." Yet, the pharaoh refused, so God hailed 10 horrific plagues on Egypt. The tenth was to kill everyone's firstborn. Yet God "passed over" the homes of the Israelites, saving their lives. A 15 step tradition for families to participate on Passover. They eat bitter herbs, to symbolize how bitter slavery was. Also, they eat Matzah, as well as drink 4 glasses of wine to celebrate freedom and recite the Haggadah, the story of the Exodus. On Passover, Jewish people are to eat Matzah, flat bread that has not been leavened on the two nights of the Seder. (cc) photo by Franco Folini on Flickr Seder During Passover, they cannot eat leavened bread or drink. Nothing with oats, rye, barley, wheat, is allowed in their house. In fact they have a burning ceremony of Chametz the night before. The middle four days are called chol hamoed, semi-festive "intermediate days", when most work is permitted. No Chametz Overview of Story Matzah Passover Observances The first two days and the last two days are full-fledge holidays. Holiday candles are lit at night, and kiddush and other holiday meals are enjoyed both nights and days. Don't work, drive, write and switch on or off electric devices. Permitted to cook and carry outdoors.
