As the sun sets on Friday evening, families across Canada will begin the Jewish celebration of Passover, an eight-day-long festival that commemorates the struggles of the ancient Israelites.
One of the most important parts of Passover is the Seder, in which family and friends gather to share a meal built upon rituals that act as a reminder of the special significance of the holiday. The meal features unleavened bread called matzoh, which is a key part of the Seder celebration.
With so much history and meaning behind the celebration of Passover, you may wish to teach your kids about this special holiday, whether with a traditional Passover Seder, or less formally with a delicious family breakfast including Matzoh Brei—with all the yumminess of French toast, but made with matzoh instead of bread. Chabad.org offers a full guide to the Passover celebration, including videos and stories for kids.
