Guest Blogger: Skycoo_Forever shares about the Grade 4 Model Seder

A Seder is when you get to dress up in fancy clothing. This is the order of how you would do the Sedar at home but it is in Hebrew.

קדש, ורחץ, כרפס, יחץ, מגיד, רחצה, מוציא, מצה, מרור, כורך, שולחן עורך, צפון, ברך הלל, נרצה

And now these are the 10 plagues of Egypt                דם








here is my model Sedar book

There are some specific songs that you will sing here they are

The Ballad of the Four Sons                                    
(to the tune of “Clementine”) 

Said the father to his children,
“At the seder you will dine,
You will eat your fill of matzoh,
You will drink four cups of wine.” 

Now this father had no daughters,
But his sons they numbered four.
One was wise and one was wicked,
One was simple and a bore.

And the fourth was sweet and winsome,
he was young and he was small.
While his brothers asked the questions
he could scarcely speak at all.

Said the wise one to his father
“Would you please explain the laws?
Of the customs of the seder
Will you please explain the cause?

And the father proudly answered,
“As our fathers ate in speed,
Ate the paschal lamb ‘ere midnight
And from slavery were freed.”

So we follow their example
And ‘ere midnight must complete
All the seder and we should not
After 12 remain to eat.

Then did sneer the son so wicked
“What does all this mean to you?”
And the father’s voice was bitter
As his grief and anger grew.

“If you yourself don’t consider
As son of Israel,
Then for you this has no meaning
You could be a slave as well.”

Then the simple son said simply
“What is this,” and quietly
The good father told his offspring
“We were freed from slavery.”

But the youngest son was silent
For he could not ask at all.
His bright eyes were bright with wonder
As his father told him all.

My dear children, heed the lesson
and remember evermore
What the father told his children
Told his sons that numbered four.

מה נשתנה הלילה הזה

מכל הלילות

מכל הלילות

שבכל הלילות אנו אוכלין

חמץ ומצה, חמץ ומצה

הלילה הזה, הלילה הזה

כולו מצה.

שבכל הלילות

אין אנו מטבילין

אפילו פעם אחת, אפילו פעם אחת

הלילה הזה, הלילה הזה

שתי פעמים.

שבכל הלילות

אנו אוכלין

בין יושבין ובין מסובין

בין יושבין ובין מסובין

הלילה הזה, הלילה הזה

כולנו מסובין.

שבכל הלילות

אנו אוכלין

שאר ירקות, שאר ירקות

הלילה הזה, הלילה הזה

כולו מרור.

מה נשתנה הלילה הזה מכל הלילות 

Here are some pictures from our Sedar at grade 4
