The Passover Seder…What to Expect

If you’re heading to a Passover Seder, it helps to know a little bit about what to expect. This video explains the basics, from the props on the table to the songs people sing. Happy Pesach and have a great seder!

A Passover Seder…with the Four Sons

There’s a famous part of the Passover Haggadah where four children are described – one who is wise, wicked, simple, and one does not know how to ask a question. We decided to zoom in on these four sons (the tradition calls them sons, and we went literal here…do be sure to stay around for a comment on that choice at the end of the video!) The characters – wise, wicked, simple, and the one who doesn’t know how to ask questions, can be found all over the world, but we’ve set their story in Moscow.

Practice Ma Nishtana (Four Questions) for Passover

Learn the Four Questions (aka Ma Nishtana) for Passover with LA’s Jason Mesches. Have a wonderful Passover – chag Pesach sameach!

The Passover Shaboom! Special: What’s Different about Tonight?

The Sparks can’t find the chametz! The Plonys can’t make matzah balls! Ma nishtana? Why is this night different from all other nights? Find out on this Passover special episode of SHABOOM!

The Ten Commandments Reaction Video: Kids Watch For the First Time

We’re not sure that Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner’s Ten Commandments have aged that well, despite the fact that we all grew up on it? You decide. Or let these grade school kids figure it out for you.

Bedikat Chametz – The Hunt for Chametz

Bedikat chametz, or the hunt for chametz, is a wonderful ritual to try out with your family the night before Passover. In this short how to video, Piera and Josh explain how they set up a scavenger hunt for their young child and why it’s a meaningful part of Pesach for their family. Anyone can do this ritual…and it’s lots of fun to play hide and seek with bread or cheerios or whatever chametz you may have on hand. Plus, the next day you get to burn it!

Happy hunting!
