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.
This dancer watched an Israeli dance company’s dark version of the Passover song, Echad Mi Yodea (“Who Knows One”).
We skyped with a Jewish friend in St. Louis to ask about his interpretation of parts of the seder.
He wrote music to interpret each of the Four Children.
We sang together to learn some songs for Passover.
