Passover Resources for Parents and Families
For so many of us, Passover is a time to gather with friends and family in our homes, to share in the seder meal and commemorate our people's liberation from slavery at the hands of the Egyptians. Though we won't be able to gather in groups this year, BJE has compiled a wonderful collection of resources to help families celebrate on their own. In addition to the resources below, BJE's JKidLA has links to resources especially for children.
Passover begins at sundown on Wednesday, April 8th with the first Seder and ends on Thursday, April 16th. BJE wishes you and yours a Chag Pesach Sameach!
