Hi all!

I didn’t mean to cut it so close to the wire on getting this out, but as promised, here is the script we plan to use this year for our first time celebrating Seudah Maphsehket on the night before Passover. For more on what Seudah Maphsehket is and why we are choosing to celebrate it, see my blog post here.

Seudah Maphsehket script and playlist

I’ve included a Host, Hostess, and Readers 1-12. Feel free to divvy those out however it works best for you. If you have more than twelve people, two can share a reader role. If you have less, one person can do more than one part. I’ve also included some suggestions for songs to sing. Feel free to take those as suggestions and add to or subtract from my list. I’ve made a YouTube playlist of lyric videos for you if you want to use my suggestions.

Here are three versions of the script. The editable ones have the year on them, but I’ve taken it off of the pdf version, so that if you want to use it in future years, you can.

Editable Word Doc

Editable Pages File

Non-editable PDF File

I make no promises that the Word and Pages files will hold the formatting, so to see how I intended it to look, check the PDF file. I plan to print them front back and then fold in half. I’ve included a coloring sheet from SundaySchoolZone.com for the cover because I like to let little ones color theirs while they are listening at the table. I find it keeps them happy and engaged a lot longer, and they make nice keepsakes if you use them over a number of years. For our Passover scripts, some years, I have taken the time to assign the readers and type their names right into the script, while other years, I tell people as they arrive what number reader they will be. It seems to work fine either way.

I hope this is helpful for you, and I’d love to hear how your celebrations go and what adaptations you make to make it work for your family!
