THE PASSOVER EXPERIENCE

Production troupe, replica village offers a trip back in time to experience the days of Passover, Jesus’ resurrection

(Continued)

A cast of 75 actors dressed as Egyptians and Israelites, performing in and around the replica Biblical-era village with its true stone buildings, gardens, statues, pathways and displays, will lead people through an interactive and truly personal experience of the period beginning when Pharaoh enslaved the Israelites through the time of Jesus’ betrayal, crucifixion and resurrection.

It is a walking tour (accommodations are made for those with limited physical abilities) that one can do in whatever order he or she wishes. There is the statue garden with 13 statues that takes visitors on a path from God’s creation of heaven and earth to the tomb of Jesus’ resurrection.

Inside a pavilion, a Jewish scholar will be on hand to provide a 20-minute program educating people about Passover Seder, a Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover.

The Path of Plagues is a guided, interactive experience that whisks people away to the time of the book of Exodus, leading them through the 10 plagues God cast upon the Egyptians, who had enslaved Jews under the rule of the Pharaoh. The trail includes several surprises, including an actual hail storm (don’t worry, you will be safe under shelter) and a long, pitch-black tunnel to experience the plague of darkness. That leads to the home of an Egyptian family to experience their angst, fear and hear their wails as the plague of the death of the first born passes.

From there, people will be led to the first-century village, moving ahead in time to the New Testament period of Jesus’ betrayal by Judas, his surrender, death and resurrection. Groups will be guided through several buildings and homes in the village for portrayals of various stories during this period, with the actors interacting with their “strange visitors” from another time.
