My eldest just turned four and I am excited to prepare for Passover and put together a child-friendly seder! As a young child, I remember enjoying Passover but also being overwhelmed by certain aspects of the Passover story, like the lessons from The Four Children. In an effort to make sure I don’t leave my own children with unanswered questions, I’ve compiled sheets to highlight Passover’s teachings in a way that is both meaningful and accessible to children.

In this week's Torah portion, learn more about plagues, Pharaoh, Moses, and his brother Aaron.
Actor and writer Joel Stanley takes us INSIDE the head of Aaron, Moses's number one man (ahem...and his brother). Plagues! Confrontations! And poison-tinged political drama where Moses and Pharaoh's attendants attack each other...with snakes??
Reporter Helen Chernikoff digs into the statistics of the Israelite census and tells us some interesting stories about the people who were wandering in the desert - much more than just their ages and occupations. Take a look bemidbar - in a desert - and see what you can learn about people.
