Passover: The Seder Meal Presentation

This resource is a fully editable, colourful and informative 70 slide lesson / assembly power point presentation on the Jewish Festival of Passover or Pesach (Hebrew) which is celebrated for seven or eight days in April each year and is a very significant event in Judaism.

The resource contains references to:

  • Why Passover is celebrated and how it got its name – the ten plagues, the exodus of the Israelites from Egyptian captivity across the Red Sea led by Moses.

  • The Seder meal – the Seder plate and the symbolic significance of all the foods on the plate - lamb bone, roasted egg, a green vegetable to dip in salt water, bitter herbs and charoset, a paste of fruit, nuts and wine. Other foods at the meal, including matzah, the four cups / glasses of wine and the extra wine goblet for the prophet Elijah.

  • The rituals followed at the Seder meal – breaking the matzah, reading from the ‘Haggadah’, the Seder cushion to ‘lean’ on. The tradition of the youngest child asking the four questions, the spilling of drops of wine on to the plate.

The PowerPoint contains two hyperlinks. One to a short 4 minute animated version of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt and a 4-minute pop / rap of the Seder meal which should appeal to teenagers!

This resource will help to contribute to the pupils’ ‘Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural’ learning (SMSC) and will help to actively promote the British Values of mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

A slightly shorter (60 slides), simple text version of this presentation, more appropriate for younger and SEN pupils, is also available.
