We came from Egypt, what did you do this weekend?

Who are you? I am Israel.
Where are you coming from? I am coming from Mitzrayim, from Egypt.
Where are you going? I am going to Yerushalayim, to Jerusalem.

We went out of Egypt and into Jerusalem as we celebrated the beginning of Pesach. Those of you who follow my blog regularly know that I've been getting ready for weeks! The time has come, and all the hard work and preparation paid off. Our Seders were wonderful.

Our Seder table...


My dad was so proud of my award-winning post that he printed it out for the whole family!

We wear masks to illustrate the 10 Plagues. They were a big hit with Sam & Yael...


David was such a hit! He sat right next to my dad, who ran the Seder, and he recited the Four Questions...plus he sang a whole bunch of cute songs including a great version of Who Knows One that made the whole family roll with laughter. Such kvelling, such naches!

For the Second Seder, it was just our immediate family and we sang songs and did a really brief service. It wore everyone out!

Enjoy your matzah!

See what other people took pictures of this weekend...

One of my most wonderful memories in the UK was when our Anglican Church did a Passover meal. It really helped me to appreciate the occasion and the history it represents.
Happy Passover to you and thanks for this great post.
