Every spring we celebrate Passover

with family and friends.

We gather together not just to pass

food, but to pass love.

We remember the story of the

Jewish people and their escape from slavery.

We eat matzoh and hard boiled eggs

and parsley dipped in salt water.

The adults drink lots of wine while we

look for the hidden afikoman.

It’s a really long meal that reminds us

to be strong and to stand up for ourselves

and for others.

By Pearl, 3rd grade
