SWFS Religious School Students Take On Charoset Challenge
This Passover, students in Kindergarten will explore the four questions and various aspects of the Passover Seder through family educational programs. First Grade students will explore the Passover Seder Plate and the various items found on it. Second Grade students look at the story of Passover and the interactive components of the Seder, while our Third through Sixth Grade students will explore different aspects of Passover, culminating in a head-to-head Charoset Challenge: A competition that combines the excitement of “Top Chef” with color war. Each grade works as a team to learn about a specific country and the different ways that Passover is observed around the world. Students will create their country’s Charoset recipe, present it artistically to the judges, create team songs and presentations, and challenge the other grades to trivia questions and interactive games. If this sounds like fun, check out the holiday programs that SWFS RS has to offer all year and come celebrate with us!READ MORE
