Your Holiday Story

Telling and listening to stories creates a powerful connection. Take some time to create meaning during the holiday by using the following conversation prompts with family and friends:

Your Passover Story

  1. Describe a moment of liberation in your life.
  2. Describe a time in your life when you took a risk. What did you learn from this experience?
  3. When you reflect on the women actors in the Passover story—from Shifrah and Puah, the midwives who saved Hebrew firstborn from being killed; to Yocheved, the mother of Moses; to Miriam, who helped lead the Israelites out of Egypt—what kind of leadership style or action do you most relate to?
  4. What role(s) do women play in your family story?
