We’re taught that on Passover we’re meant to experience the Exodus story as if we ourselves had come out of Egypt…
Now this is a story all about how
My life got flipped turned upside down
Now I’d like to take a minute just sit right there
I’ll tell you how I was freed from Egypt and how my story ain’t rare
In bondage in Egypt born and raised
Brickmaking with my brothers is how I spent most of my days
Grinding and mashing and using all sorts of tools
Just minding my business and avoiding taskmaster fools
When all of a sudden God did something none of us could
And started bringing plagues to Pharaoh’s neighborhood
From blood to slaying babies eventually Pharaoh got scared
So Moses said “You’re heading into freedom! Go quickly bake bread to prepare!”
I started to bake the bread feeling redemption was near
But worried how to keep it fresh because the timeline wasn’t clear
If anything I figured unleavened cakes made with care
Would remain preserved despite extended exposure to fresh air
We crossed over the sea after very little wait
And we sang in celebration “Yo Egyptians, catch ya later”
Brought to Mt. Sinai, Moses provided tablets – a pair!
Now we tell our children the story so they too will be aware.
Wishing you and yours a meaningful and joyous Passover.
