60 Second Seder

For anyone who's ever complained that the Passover Seder goes on for too long, here's a one minute summary of the whole megillah:

And here's the write-up from YouTube:

Shalom and welcome to Parsha in 60 Seconds

Today's portion is BONUS ROUND! Passover

"Why is this night different from all other nights?" Passover, or Pesach is one of the most significant Jewish holidays. It celebrates the Exodus narrative in which God uses Moses to deliver the Israelites from Egyptian slavery. You know the story; Moses is adopted by Pharaohs daughter, grows up, sees injustice, kills an Egyptian, runs away, meets his wife, meets God, goes back to Egypt, unleashes the power of God in 10 plagues, splits the red sea, and receives the commandments of God.

In the final plague, the death of the first born, the Angel of death "Passed Over" all homes marked with the blood of the lamb. Thus, the name Passover.

Immediately after this event of many miracles, plagues, and power of God, God commanded the Jewish people to remember what was done by having a meal called a Seder. Jewish people today still participate in the Seder in which friends and family and entire communities come together to remember what God did for the people.

Many items of great significance are used in the meal and all are used to tell this amazing story.


And that is Passover in 60 seconds

Of course, Pesach is a time when we take a break from our hurried lives and busy schedules, and take time to spend with family, friends, and in remembrance and appreciation of our history and tradition.
