Keep Focus cards
What has mommy done for us lately?
Want to keep the youngsters involved in the Seder? Let them be in charge of the "Seder meter". This might work well on a clipboard.
Use this chart to make sure that you don't miss even one night of counting Sefira!
Let a little child feel part of the Seder as well! As you move along Magid, they will move the "Magid meter" along with everyone else. (This will also help them know when Magid is over!)
Help everyone stay focused during the seder. Hand these out before the Seder. Make sure to give the older children more thinking questions.
This is a way that we can all appreciate everything that Mom does for us. Add to this list daily!
Hold this card up during the Seder (many times) and ask the children what does it stand for. If they say "Hashem loves me", they get a reward.
Hold this up during the Seder (many times), and ask you children what it stands for. If they say Forward All Issues Towards Hashem, then they get a prize!
This is the KEY to your success of the Seder! Print (MANY) these. Had them our freely, to be redeemed after Pesach. (You may want to laminate them )
Pesach in Bergen Belson
This handwritten “Chametz on Passover Prayer” from Bergen Belsen Passover 1944 was displayed at the Ghetto Fighters Museum in Tel-Aviv.
It was probably written by Rabbi Aharon Bernard Davids, leader of the Dutch community of Rotterdam in Holland, and by Rabbi Simon Dasberg of Gronigen Holland.
Their communities had been interned first in the Westerbork Holland transit camp and sent to Bergen Belsen concentration camp.
This is the rough translation:
Before eating Chametz say the following with intent & devotion:
Our Father in Heaven! It is known to You that we desire to fulfill Your will and observe the Passover holiday by eating Matzah and safeguarding against Chametz. But our hearts are pained at the captivity which prevents us, and we find ourselves in danger of our lives.
We are hereby ready to fulfill Your commandments “And you shall live by them (the commandments)” and not die by them, and to observe the caution of “guard yourself and watch your soul/life very much.” Therefore our prayer to You is that You keep us alive, and sustain us, and redeem us speedily, so that we may observe Your laws and fulfill Your will and serve You with a full heart. Amen!
And then these Jews gathered around Rabbi Davids in Bergen-Belsen and ate their meager ration of bread on the night of Passover.
