Passover in Egypt

Passover in Egypt

(p.14) Two Passover in Egypt
Mongrels or Marvels

In this chapter, published in 1965, Jacqueline Shohet Kahanoff reflects on the Jewish festival of Passover, when Jews commemorate the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. She was already of school age when she attended her first Passover seder, held at the home of her maternal uncle, David Chemla. The seder serves an important narrative function in Jacqueline's early fiction. In this chapter, Jacqueline remembers the first time her parents took her with them to her Uncle David's house to celebrate Passover with them. They stayed there for three days with her cousins, Jacques and Roger. Passover made the streets of Cairo more interesting than usual.
