ReDesigning Judaism

In Anafim, our third through fifth grade children have been exploring how the meaning of the seder changes in every generation. Through the years, we redesign Judaism so it can remain vibrant through the centuries. Our Enrichment Center children are taking their place in the ongoing conversation of just how we’ll redesign Judaism for ourselves today.

Here’s what we did this week to approach this giant, essential question.

We read text from the Haggadah and worked together to figure out what it says.

We skyped with a Jewish friend in St. Louis to ask about his interpretation of parts of the seder.
