THE MATZAH THAT PAPA BROUGHT HOME

This is THE FEAST that Mama made
with the matzah that Papa brought home.
This is THE PASSOVER SEDER we shared
to eat the feast that Mama made
with the matzah that Papa brought home.
This is ME standing tall and proud
to ask the Four Questions nice and loud
during the Passover Seder we shared
to eat the feast that Mama made
with the matzah that Papa brought home… 

The Matzah That Papa Brought Home

The Matzah That Papa Brought Home

by Fran Manushkin

Inspired by Chad Gadyoh, the lyrical text and warm illustrations make this a part of our family seder each year. In the author’s own words:

“When I was a child, nobody told me what the seder was about. My father stood at the head of the table, holding a glass of wine and talking in Hebrew, a language that I didn’t understand. All I knew about Passover was that I was to take salami-and-matzah sandwiches to school. So I wrote this book to offer young children of today a child’s eye-view of their family’s seder. It tells them all they need to know about the holiday, in a lively format.”
