Passover Songs


Here is a good one for toddlers:

Pat a cake, Pat a cake, Matzah Man.
Bake me an afikomen as fast as you can.
The afikomen is the piece that Daddy hides,
so I can find it and get a prize


PASSOVER SONG

(Tune: “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”)

We work so hard in the desert sun,

Making bricks is not much fun.

Pharaoh let us go away,

We don’t really want to stay.

Moses lead us to the sea,

‘Cause we all want to be free.

 


Sung to the tune: “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”

We work so hard in the desert sun,

Making bricks is not much fun.

Pharaoh let us go away,

We don’t really want to stay.

Moses lead us to the sea,

‘Cause we all want to be free!


“The Matzah Making Song” (and fingerplay) (sung to the tune of “Row, row, row your boat)
Roll, roll, roll your dough (one hand palm up, other hand above it, palm down making circular motions).
Make it nice and round (make a circle with fingers).
Make it flat (one hand palm up,slap other hand down on it),
Poke lots of holes (one hand palm up, with your fingers on the other hand pretend to poke holes in palm up hand),
And bake it till it’s brown (both hand palm up, touching on sides, move forward, as if putting a tray in the oven).


Passover Song (to tune of London bridge)

Moses freed the Jewish slaves,
Jewish slaves, Jewish slaves,
Moses freed the Jewish slaves, On Passover.
He told the Pharaoh let them go,
let them go, let them go,
He told the Pharaoh let them go, On Passover.
Moses parted the Red Sea,
the Red Sea, the Red Sea,
Moses parted the Red Sea, So they could be free.
He led them safely to the shore,
to the shore, to the shore,
He led them safely to the shore,
Slaves they’ll be no more!
