PASSOVER AT BUBBE'S is a short educational film that outlines the story of Passover, but it takes a little while to get going. And for very young kids or children outside the Jewish faith, some terms are defined while others are not, and many are not made clear. Then the story jumps to the biblical tale of Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt, where there is no context given for descriptions of lamb's blood smeared on doorways or God smiting Egypt with a series of plagues.

Without having already been immersed in the story, the whipping of slaves, blood, and the evil Pharaoh may make little sense, which makes this movie best for kids who are already familiar with Passover.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
