Soon, families will gather around the seder table to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Passover, a major spring festival commemorating the Exodus from Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. Today, the holiday is a celebration of freedom and family.

With eight nights to celebrate, Hanukkah is a wonderful holiday for families to enjoy together – especially if there are teens in the house or in your extended family.

Use this resource to engage in a dialogue with your teen, or as a starting point for them to lead a seder table discussion.
