    • The story of Passover is traditionally told over the Passover Seder (Passover meal) and is sprinkled with lots of singing, wine drinking and fish-eating. The story about the Jewish people’s enslavement in Egypt and their eventual escape.

      The story begins before the Jews were slaves in Egypt, when Joseph, son of Jacob and Rachel, worked as an adviser to the Pharaoh.
      Joseph was able to predict an oncoming famine, which gave the Pharoah time to prepare and save his people. Because of his deed, when Joseph’s family came to Egypt they were invited to stay and live in peace for a number of generations. The descendants of his family came to be known as the Israelites.
      But as the generations multiplied, and Joseph and the Pharaoh passed away, the agreement was forgotten. The new Pharaoh became alarmed at the large numbers of Israelites in Egypt, and decided to enslave them. He later issued a decree to drown all newborn Israelite boys in the river.

      One Hebrew couple, Yocheved and Amram, put their baby son in a basket and placed it in the Nile, hoping that he would escape death. The baby was quickly discovered by the Pharaoh’s daughter and adopted. The princess named the boy Moses, or “he who was drawn from the water.”
      Moses grew up with the Pharaoh, and was raised as a member of the royal family until he witnessed an Egyptian beating up an Israelite slave. Full of outrage, Moses beat the Egyptian to death and was cast out from Egypt as punishment.
      After a bit of wandering, Moses settled East of Egypt, married and became a shepherd. Meanwhile, the Israelites’ situation in Egypt worsened and they called to God for help. He responded by reaching out to Moses.
      While tending his flocks one day, Moses heard a voice coming from a flaming bush. The voice identified itself as God and told Moses to go and save his people, and to tell the Pharaoh to “Let My people go, so that they may serve Me.”
      Moses set off with his brother, Aaron, and appealed to the Pharaoh who refused to listen and worsened the conditions for the Israelites.
      After several more unsuccessful diplomatic attempts, God began to send plagues, including blood, frogs, lice, flies, cattle-plague, boils, fire hail, locusts and darkness onto the people of Egypt, but none of them convinced the Pharaoh to set the Israelites free.
      Finally, the Israelites were told to bring a “Passover offering” of a lamb or goat to God and to put its blood on their doorposts because those homes would be passed over when he inflicted the final plague, the killing of the firstborn children.

  6. Passover
    ***********
    Hebrew Pesah, or Pesach, in Judaism, is a holiday commemorating liberation from slavery in Egypt and the “passing over” of the forces of destruction, or the sparing of the first born of the Israelites, when the Lord “Smote the land of Egypt” on the eve of the Exodus.
    A, Smote Means, to strike down, injury or slay, as God did to the Egyptians.
    B, means, a mass departure of people, such as the departure of the Israelites from Egypt.
    C, Liberation means, the action is setting someone free from imprisonment, or slavery.
    ****************************
    The Story of Passover
    *************************
    The Passover story is from the Biblical book of Exodus, which is about the ancient Hebrews enslavement in Egypt and how they were freed. It’s the central story of the Torah (the first 5 books of the Old Testament), the Torah is the holy book of the Jewish faith.
    The Passover story begins when the Pharaoh of Egypt, starts worrying that the Jews living in Egypt will outnumber his own people. His response: forcing them into slavery, and decreeing that every son born to the Hebrews (people of Mosses) should be drowned in the Nile. One baby, named Mosses is saved and adopted by Pharaohs own daughter.
    When Mosses grows up, he’s told by God to command Pharaoh to let the Jews go. Pharaoh says no, and God sets out to convince him by way of the Ten Plagues which are, water turning to blood, 🐸, Lice, flies, livestock (cows, goats And sheep), Pestilence (a fatal epidemic disease like the Plague), Boils (big fat ugly spots), Hail, Locusts (like Grasshoppers), Darkness and the killing of the First born children.
    The tenth and final plague, God passes through the land of Egypt and strikes down the first born of every household. But the Jews have been told to mark their doors with the blood of a lamb they’ve sacrificed – the Passover offering – and so God “passes over” there homes. Jews give thanks for being “passed over” and protected from the plagues! This shows that although the ten plagues were disasters to the Egyptians they were miracles to the Jews.
    Pharaohs son is killed during this final Plague, and as a result, Pharaoh at first agrees to let the Jews go free before changing his mind, as Pharaohs do. The chase begins and the Jews along with Mosses are caught up in a trap with the Red Sea in front of them, and Pharaoh’s army behind them. Mosses asks God for help, God tells him to use his staff to part the Red sea and just as the last of the Jews cross the sea walls close in and kill all most of the pharaohs army.
    The people of Mosses are left wondering in the harsh places and eventually after having received the Ten Commandments and waiting and waiting, after 40 years in the desert they are lead to the land of Israel.

  8. The story of Passover
    Once in Egypt There was a bad sour pharaoh who treated Egypt like slaves. God didn’t like this so he told Moses “ I am your god and I sent you to tell the Pharaoh that I am the god of Egypt and all the other gods are worthless against my power” so Moses told him that and he (the pharaoh) did not agree. So Moses turn all the lakes water in to blood . Then the pharaohs Magician Figured out how to make Water to blood The pharaoh was angry so he told the pharaoh let all of gods slaves go or I’ll make all the frogs rise above the water The pharaoh did not agree again The frogs
    terrorise the City. After that happened Gnats terrorise the city after frogs . Days after days after days The pharaoh never agreed but the day arrived finally came everyone had to kill a male lamb and and paint there blood on the wall on the outside of there house this happened so there male son (at new born or child)does not get killed. The pharaohs son died and the he gave up the city and slaves were no longer slaves the city was free

  9. In Israel a man called Farrell though he was a ruler. He made all people in Israel be a slave. Everyone was unhappy. After 400 years of being slaves god stepped in to help. He sent moses to Ferrell to tell him to let the slaves go but he said no. Moses the turned water to blood and asked Farrell again to let the people go. He said no again. Moses returned 7 days later and told Ferrell if you do not let the people go I will fill your land with frogs but he still refused. Moses sent attackers,flies and fiery gallstones but still he would not let them go. Moses told people of Israel that god had a plan. They were going to kill all first born sons so they could kill Ferrell. Moses told everyone to kill a animal and smear blood on doors and any door he passed with blood on he would pass over.

    Story of Passover
    The Passover story begins when the Pharaoh, the ruler of Egypt, starts worrying that the Jews living in Egypt will outnumber his own people. His response: forcing them into slavery, and decreeing that every son born to the Hebrews should be drowned in the Nile. It’s a part of the story that, forJews, has come to symbolize anti- Semitic persecution more broadly and the historical struggle to endure it. One baby named Moses is saved and adopted by Pharaoh’s own daughter.
    When Moses grows up, he’s told by God to command Pharaoh to let the Jews go. Pharaoh says no, and God sets out to convince him by way of the Ten Plagues. As the story goes, during the tenth and final plague, God passes through the land of Egypt and strikes down the first born of every household. But the Jews have been told to mark their doors with the blood of a lamb they’ve sacrificed the Passover offering and so God passes over their homes. Jews give thanks for being passed over and protected from the Plagues: it’s a reminder that even when Jews are oppressed, the Bible teaches that they are chosen people and will survive.
    Pharaoh’s son is killed during this final plague, and as a result, Pharaoh lets the Jews go free before changing his mind. The chase ends up with Moses being trapped in front of the Red Sea, before it’s parted by God for the Jews to cross-the act of divine intervention that finally leads them to freedom, and after forty years in the desert to the land of Israel.

  14. Home learning – Why do Jewish people celebrate Passover.

    What is Passover?

    Passover or Pesach in Hebrew is one of the most important festival in the Jewish year. Passover is an celebration of the story of the exodus, during Passover many Jewish people remember how their ancestor left slavery behind them, and why it lead Moses to free all the Israelites from the pharaoh.

    The story of Passover?

    The story begins with Moses who lived in Egypt. He was very sad and upset at seeing all the Israelites being harassed and persecuted. He asked the pharaoh to free the Jewish people, but the pharaoh said no, I own them.

    Moses was so angry, he told the pharaoh a dream he had that god will send a terrible plague, if he didn’t listen. But the pharaoh was so adement, that Moses was lying to him. When the river turned red, frog, lice, flies, death of all livestock, boils, hail, locust, darkness and death of first born son.

    Moses had a sign from god, telling him to warn all the Israelites to mark the door with blood of the lamb. This means that the angel of death will Passover. After the death of the pharaoh first born son, he order Moses to leave immediately with his people. As they leave in a rush they had cooked bread, it was called matzah, this is eaten at Passover. But with the pharaoh still angry he wanted to kill all the people and Moses, and order his army to chase them down.

    Moses realised this, he reached a pass. He had to cross the sea and there was no other way and asked for god help. As he placed the stick in front of the sea, it split allowing he and the Israelites to cross, but as the army followed they got swept away. After finally reaching mount Sinai, god revealed the 10 commandments to Moses.
