Passover, Holiday of Video
Passover is the quintessential symbolic and educational festival. The fun educational tool of choice at the start of this century is the web video. Amichai Lau Lavie, of Storahtelling fame, makes that point exactly, in this video shot at an educational gathering pulled together by Repair the World and Uncommon Schools.
Jake Marmer, doing performative poetry at his computer, makes a slightly different point about matzo (or should that be Umtza?) in a video here at the Forward.
Meanwhile, those industriously educative Jews on the West Coast have put together their latest G-dcast piece about Pesach which I’m posting here so that everyone can watch it with their favorite schooler or pre-schooler, whether Binah, Levi, Anika, Mika, Thalia, Max, Wolfie or Irving.
