A Sesame Street Passover: Kippi and the Missing Matzah

  • A hallmark of Sesame Street has always been inclusiveness, no matter what a person’s ethnicity, language, religion, or abilities. Inclusiveness is also an essential element of the Passover seder. Near the beginning of the Haggadah, the book guides the ordered ritual of the seder, we read: “Let all who are hungry come and eat.” Just as Kippi explains to his Sesame Street friends in Kippi and the Missing Matzah, everyone is welcome at the seder. Many families make it a point to invite friends and family to their seder. And synagogues, Jewish community centers, and federations often help pair people who are hosting a seder with those who are looking for one to attend.  

  • What a wonderful example for children to see that inclusiveness is alive and well and living in your home, your family, and your community. Consider encouraging your children to invite a friend over to a seder to proudly share their history and culture with others who would enjoy and benefit from the experience. You could be starting a fabulous family custom that will last a lifetime!
