You're the Commentator


Tuesday, January 4, 2011


You all know the story - we tell it every year at our Passover seder.   What is your favorite part of the story?  What do you think would have been your favorite part if you were in the story?

Today there are Jews who live in countries where there is a lot of anti-Jewish activity.  Jews living there may feel they have to hide the fact that they are Jewish.  Some of the Jews in these countries choose to leave, while other decide to stay.  It may seem like a simple choice to you, but think about the fact that leaving means going somewhere you don't know anyone, have to go to a new school with no friends, might never see your old home and friends again .  Not so simple after all.

  • Some commentators believe that only a small percentage of the Hebrews living in Egypt left during the Exodus. 
  • Would you have been part of the group that left? 
  • Or would you have stayed in Egypt? 
Explain your answer.

    1. Just re-read your comment, and wanted to tell you that there are often views from the homeschooling crowd, and I appreciate your helping to spread the word. I wish more readers would share responses!
