Form 4 experienced a Jewish Passover Meal today in Religious Studies as part of their work on Jewish Festivals. They tasted Haroset, a sweet, brown mixture made of apples, honey and nuts representing the mortar used by the Hebrew slaves to build the storehouses or pyramids of Egypt. They also tried some horseradish which represents the bitterness of slavery in the story of the Exodus. They also ate flat bread (Matzo) which is another food on the Seder plate. The Jewish people celebrate Passover as a commemoration of their liberation by God from slavery in Egypt and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. Form 4 enjoyed sharing in this experience and were very brave when it came to tasting some of the stronger tastes!
