Hello 👋 ,
I hope you had a good week! Thank you for the pictures you made of the burning bush. 🔥 The story of Moses and God continues and this week I want to tell you about that.
Here is what happened next:
Did you know that every year, people celebrate a special day called passover to remember what happened? They have a meal, just like the people did then. Jesus also did that. We call that “the last supper”. It was right before he was killed on a cross. (He also came back to life, but you already know that… :))
Now, instead of passover, we celebrate Easter, because of Jesus. Just like God saved the people of Israel and gave them freedom, we can now have life and freedom because of Jesus!
When people celebrate passover they eat a special kind of bread. This bread does not need much time, because the people had to leave Egypt so quickly. Maybe you want to try making it yourself? 🫓 🧑🍳
You can find the instructions at the end. Ask your parents to help you and enjoy the freshly baked passover bread together.
I hope to see you soon and I am praying for you,
Passover Bread (“Matzah”) Recipe
75 ml water
120 gr flour
One teaspoon olive oil
A little bit of salt
The oven needs to heat at 250* C. Put a baking tray into the oven, so it can also heat up.
Place the flour in a bowl and add a little bit of water. Stir with a fork. Keep adding water and stirring the mix. Once a dough forms, take it out of the bowl.
Put a little bit of flour on a clean surface. Put the dough onto the surface and knead it.
Divide the dough into 8 pieces. Roll out each piece with a rolling pin. It has to be very thin.
Take the fork and prick each sheet of dough. Place it on a piece of parchment paper on the hot baking tray and bake it for two minutes. Then, turn the bread over and bake for two more minutes.
Brush the bread with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle some salt on top.
Try your homemade passover bread!
