In our R.E topic we have been learning about how the Jewish population celebrate Passover.
We now know that it lasts for a week and is celebrated in spring. Passover started in Egypt over 3000 years ago to celebrate the release of slaves. The evening before Passover begins is a special time called Seder (this means order). They celebrate this by serving a plate of 6 types of food, each representing a different part of Passover. Egg – a holiday offering brought in the days of the Holy Temple. Onion, Potato or parsley – salty tears cried by the slaves, lettuce – the bitterness of slavery, a shank bone – the lamp that was sacrificed, horseradish – the suffering and bitterness and a mixture of apples , nuts and wine for the mortar and brick made by the Jews. We all thoroughly enjoyed this topic and found it very interesting. Take a look at our beautifully presented work.
