“Exodus” Brought Story of Passover to Life
for Local Jewish Community

The best way to learn it is to experience it.  That’s why Rabbi Pesach & Chana Burston of Chabad of Orange County recently hosted a community trip to the Exodus Show held at the new Jewish Children’s Museum in Brooklyn.  A coach bus full of adults and children from throughout the county enjoyed the incredible show, which allows participants to relive the story of the Jewish nation’s journey out of Egypt over 3000 years ago.  The story is brought to life with live actors and multimedia, and several highlights include walking through ancient Egypt, meeting Pharaoh in his palace, witnessing the ten plagues and crossing the Red Sea.  At the conclusion of the show, participants are given the opportunity to roll and bake their own matza, the unleavened bread the Jews ate as they hastily left Egypt without time for their bread to rise.  “The Exodus show was really neat,” commented Brendon Pearlman, age 9, of Chester. “I especially liked the sound effects!” 

Participants commented that the show allowed them to feel as though they were living in Egypt during those times, and brought the audience to a new understanding of the Jewish nation’s journey from slavery to freedom.  The story of Passover, which took place so long ago, became a reality in the present.

Some group also visited an authentic matzo bakery, enjoyed the exhibits at the Jewish Children’s Museum, and shopped local Judaica shops.

“It was a great learning experience and fun all at the same time” Said Robyn Schucart of Bloomingburg, who came with her 3 daughters.
