The Yankee at the Seder<br> by Elka Weber
Name: The Yankee at the Seder
by Elka Weber
Product Code: BEW2
Description:Item Number: BEW2 
Product Detail:The war is over, and everyone is saying the South lost. Ten-year-old Jacob would give anything to show those Yankees that not all Confederates are ready to surrender.
He gets his chance when he sees a real, live Yankee soldier walking down his street, on leave for Passover. But before Jacob can think of a way to be brave, the Yankee asks him for a piece of his matzoh.
This true story about a Jewish Yankee soldier joining a Southern family’s Passover meal shows how common values can overcome even the most divisive differences. Gathered around the Seder table, the group discusses what it means to be free – a subject as relevant today was it was during the War between the states and during the Exodus.
