A Family Passover Celebration with
Yellow Sneaker and "The Matzo Time Crunch"
Join Yellow Sneaker’s cast of puppet characters on a hilarious journey from the kitchen to the Seder table. Families will be delighted as ordinary household items and models of ritual objects from the archives at the Center are used to interpret the story of the exodus—bringing age-old traditions to life in fantastical ways. Following the show, participants will create matzo covers, giving them a piece of tradition to bring to their own Seder tables.
