Dusting, washing and vacuuming have been the theme of this week… Many people in the Jewish Community are preparing for next week’s festival of Pesach – Passover.
– Passover is the oldest continuously celebrated Jewish festival.
– Jewish people eat matza, a flat, unleavened bread made of flour and water, during the Passover holiday.
– They do this to remember their ancestors who, in order to escape from slavery in Egypt, left in such a hurry that there was no time for their bread dough to rise.
– Children play an important role in the Passover celebration. During the Seder (celebration) dinner, the youngest child at the table generally asks four questions, the answers to which explain “why this night is different from all other nights.”
– People ‘spring clean’ their homes in preparation for a week of festivities.
We are looking forward to sharing our first Passover celebration together as a school next year and we wish everyone a happy and kosher Passover.
This week we also held our second Statuary Consultation open meeting. Thank you to those that joined us. Please also take this opportunity to send your views about the school opening. These can be submitted via the consultation tab above.
