Have a Syrian Passover in Judeo-Arabic

Passover begins on 27 March 2021 when Jews sit down to a ceremonial meal called the Seder. 

The Seder celebrates the liberation of the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt.  In many communities it is customary to recite the Haggadah in Judeo-Arabic. 

Here is a Syrian rendition of 'Echad mi yodea?' - Who knows one? in Judeo-Arabic:'Min ya'alam umin yidri? This recording was made in 2020 by Chloe Pourmorady on khamandji and Asher Shasho Levy on oudh.

Hag Pesah Sameah to all those who celebrate the festival!
