Video Seder

PROJECT #1: THE COMPOSITE VIDEO SEDER

The word "Seder" means "Order." A Seder is organized in a specific order, made up of 15 steps. Below you will find these steps, in the correct "seder" (order). We have divided one of these steps, "Maggid," (telling the Passover story), into several parts, since it is the longest section of the Seder!

THE BASIC IDEA: Make a video that is 90 seconds or less about one of the steps in the Seder.

WHAT TO DO:  1) Choose one of the items below. 2) Write the name of the person or people who will be making the video on this shared Google doc, so that different groups can make videos of different parts. 3) Make a video! It can be funny, strange, serious, realistic. Use your imagination. Remember, it should be 90 seconds or less. 4) Share the video with me.  5) Your video will then be included in our Virtual Video Seder!

THE ORDER OF THE SEDER:

The first of four cups of wine is poured; the blessing is said to sanctify the feast day.
