Passover at The J Site and 165 Websites about Passover
Passover is the Jewish holiday, of Biblical origin, marking the
birth of the Jews as a people and their emergence as a unique
nation in history, devoted to G-d's will. It celebrates the
liberation of the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt
over 3000 years ago, under the leadership of Moses.
This year Passover starts on Wednesday night, April 16, 2003.
The J Site - Jewish Education and Entertainment
has several entertaining features for Passover:
How old was Moshe's mother when she gave birth to Moshe ?
How long did the Jews' exile in Egypt last ?
What happened to Pharoh's daughter, Batiya, when the
Jewish people left Egypt ?
These are just a few examples of Passover trivia that you
will find in the Jewish Trivia Database. The facts,
the whole facts, and nothing but the facts!
Whether you need a picture for your child's class project,
a graphic for your synagogue, Hillel or JCC Passover
announcement, the Jewish Clipart Database has the pictures
for you. You can copy, save and print the graphics in
three different sizes.
Passover Word Search Game
Enter the Multilingual Word Search game and choose the
language you would like to play in: English, Hebrew or
Russian. There is an easy mode for the kids and a harder
mode for us big kids. Learning Passover words has never
been more fun. Each game is randomly generated from a
special list of Passover words. You can even print out a
blank game (and the solution page) for offline playing.
The easy mode was simple? Try the hard mode in a foreign
language with the timer on. Remember that looking at the
solution page is a last resort :-)
My Jewish Coloring Book - Passover Pictures
Young kids love to draw and this online coloring book
is made just for them. Three different size "brushes"
and 24 colors to choose from. You can print the completed
color pictures or print black and white outlines to color
offline. No need to go buy a coloring book this Passover.
Hebrew Passover Songs with Vowels (Nikud)
Enter My Hebrew Songbook and choose the category Passover.
You can view any song online or create a printed song sheet
with several songs together for a sing along. All Hebrew is
graphic so you do not need Hebrew support to view or print
