Get Ready for Lotsa Matzah
  Mitzvah means "commandment." It's related to the word tzavsa, which means, "to connect." Whenever you do a Mitzvah, you attach yourself to G-d!Do it Right on Passover Night.  
This year, the holiday of Pesach (Passover) occurs April 10-18th. But there's lots to learn and do before then. Here are some Passover fun facts.

  • Moses brought 10 plagues upon Pharaoh and the land of Egypt. First, G-d turned the Nile River to blood!

  • For 210 years, the Jewish people were slaves to the Egyptians. Finally, G-d sent Moses to free the Jews. G-d commanded the Jews to slaughter a lamb, put its blood on the door posts and stay in their houses, while He killed the first born males throughout Egypt.

  • After the last plague, Pharaoh freed the Jews. He made them leave so quickly that their dough didn't rise. So they only could take matzah with them. The Exodus from Egypt happened on 14th of Nissan, 2448 CE. That's 3, 310 years ago! We've been enjoying Passover ever since!
