Passover is a Jewish holiday in which the Jewish people commemorate their liberation from slavery in Egypt. During this time, many Jews around the world read the story of the Exodus and take part in a festive meal. At CHW Hadassim and CHW Nahalal, the dormitory children who do not return home enjoy a Seder at the youth village; together everyone dresses in blue and white, recites the Passover story, and enjoy a delicious meal!
Every Friday the daycare hosts Kabbalat Shabbat services. During the services, the children are taught about Jewish traditions and customs. Parents are invited to take part in these services. Each week a different boy and girl are selected to be the “Father” and “Mother” of the Shabbat service. This brings the families and daycare closer together.
