Matzah & Miracles is a 40-minute complete Passover musical on CD packaged inside an 88-page Chapter Book with dramatic play activities for the Seder such as song lyrics, stick puppet characters to color and skits to perform. This original Jewish musical is an ideal Passover gift for elementary school children. It is the only complete Passover musical on the market with its Pesach story written into a chapter book. Synopsis: Another Passover? Another Seder? The Lerner kids, Ariel and Benjamin, think it's the most boring holiday ever! That's until their Bubbe finds an enchanting, magical way to tell them the story that every Jew around the world tells at their Passover Seder and has for thousands of years. The children travel back in time to Ancient Egypt and experience first-hand the liberation of the Hebrews from slavery. As they embody Moses and his brave sister, Miriam, Benjamin confronts the Pharaoh to "let my people go" and Ariel plays her timbrel as the Red Sea parts. Readers and listeners will forever remember the story of Passover and its holiday traditions. A wonderful Afikomen gift and Seder companion for Jewish children - and for children of all beliefs to learn about the Passover holiday.
