In a tour of the Passover exhibition on Children’s Island, you’ll learn about Passover’s history and traditions. Colorful clay figurines demonstrate Moses leading his people out of slavery in Egypt, the foods that are always on the ceremonial table on the first night of Passover, and why no leavened foods may be eaten during the eight days of Passover.

Then, we’ll move to the workshop kitchen, where we’ll bake matzah bread together and enjoy every crunchy bite.
