THE PASSOVER STORY
The Passover Story recounts historical events in ancient Egypt, starting with the harsh slavery conditions of descendants of Jacob (son of Isaac, son of Abraham) and of and Moses’ first attempt to secure his people’s freedom to the Israelite’s eventual redemption – all in lovely rhymes and beautiful illustrations
(Reblogged from 2014)
Passover, “Pesach” in Hebrew, is the first of the three major festivals with both historical and agricultural significance (Shavuot and Sukkot, being the other two).
On Passover, Jews everywhere celebrate the redemption of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery, over 3800 years ago.
Moses, the leader of the Israelites, was commanded by God to demand of Pharaoh, the Egyptian ruler, to let the Jewish people go. Pharaoh was not keen on the idea. Eventually, the Jews of Egypt escaped Pharaoh and slavery in the most spectacular fashion.
Passover observances involve the eating of the Matzah (unleavened bread) and the celebration of the Seder. The Matzah eaten on Passover is made of flour and water and without yeast and is baked quickly. It commemorates the hasty departure of the Jews from Egypt, which did not allow time for lengthy preparation and rising doughs. And during the Seder the story of the exodus in told and retold in detail.
The picture book, The Passover Story, tells the story of the Jews of ancient Egypt and their escape from slavery in lovely rhymes accompanied by gorgeous illustrations.

Introduction to Hebrew:
The Hebrew language was spoken by the Jews of the Land of Israel in ancient times. The language was revived in the 1800s under the leadership of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, the Father of Modern Hebrew. Hebrew is the language of the State of Israel.
Hebrew is different from English, not only in sound but also in the way it is written. Hebrew alphabet has 22 letters, the first of which are alef and bet. Five of the 22 letters are written a bit differently when they appear at the end of a word and some Hebrew letters have more than one sound. For example, the sound of “P” and the sound of “F” are represented by the same letter, pronounced “Pey” or “Fey” depending on its word. Hebrew vowels are represented by symbols, which generally are not written in texts though they are used in prayer books and children’s and beginner learning books. Finally, the most observable distinction of Hebrew is that it is written and read from right to left.

Colors In Hebrew: A Rainbow Tale: A Story in Rhyme For English Speaking Kids
Mazor Books, 2014
40 Pages $12.99
Review by Debbie Feder
This book is part of a series called A Taste of Hebrew published by Mazor Books. The series includes books on Hebrew letters and numbers, as well. This time, the reader is invited to follow a traveling rainbow to Israel in order to learn the names of the colors in Hebrew along with two children named Ami and Tami. The text rhymes successfully and rhythmically which is not always achieved in children’s books of this kind. The illustrations are bright, cheerful and are filled with deep colors which seem to saturate the page. This creates an overall tone which is upbeat, young, and fun and which will attract young readers. On the whole, the book is age-appropriate and appealing. There is some useful material in the back which will be helpful for families in learning and teaching the Hebrew words including some grammar tips, charts with the masculine and feminine forms of the colors, and some additional bonus words which are related to the themes in the book. Throughout the book, the Hebrew words are transliterated into English and shown in Hebrew, as well. There is also a pronunciation guide for parents. Children will enjoy this happy frolic with the rainbow as they learn the names of colors in Hebrew.
Recommended for ages 3-8.
