    Acting out on Pessah

    Modern Jewish educators frequently use drama as an educational tool in order to bring a biblical or talmudic story to life, or to get a child more actively involved in the subject under discussion. Much of the Pessah Seder is also geared toward children, in order to fulfill the mitzva of v'higadta l'vincha – "and you shall tell your children" (Exodus 13:8). Therefore, it should come as no surprise that a number of Pessah customs use drama in order to arouse the interest of children and bring the Exodus to life.
