Family Life & Learning – Pesah Resources

Dear Families,

As we begin our preparation for Passover, our amazing Family Life and Learning Team has compiled resources and activities to bring the retelling of the story of our people’s exodus from Mitzrayim (Egypt), into your homes.

Do as we are commanded: sit back, relax, and enjoy these dynamic and relevant resources. These offerings wouldn’t be possible without Rabbi Erin Glazer, Rachel Barnehama, Laura Schultze, Makai Dorfman, Danielle Freedman, Emma Miller, Shira Averbuch, Michael Harlow, Jeremy Sipe, David Lieberman, and our entire BJ Theater Company!

“The Exodus from Egypt occurs in every human being, in every era, in every year, and in every day.”- Rabbi Nachman of Breslov

You may feel isolated. You may feel virtually enslaved by technology, or wish you could be with other friends and family members in person. Our children are all feeling the same way.

My hope, and the hope of the BJ leadership, is that you have the opportunity to take a breath and experience your own form of Exodus from your day to day. May you and your family find spiritual freedom, nourishment, and health every day.
