The magician’s visit

Jonah and Rebecca have fallen on hard times and as Passover approaches, they have no money to buy candles and food for the Seder. When a mysterious stranger arrives at their door and magically conjures a fabulous feast, the couple are amazed. But is this all an illusion or could it be the intervention of the prophet Elijah?

This spellbinding retelling of Peretz’s much loved fable is the perfect introduction to the lessons of Passover and the importance of generosity and kindness.
