Description

The war is over, and everyone is saying the South lost. Ten-year-old Jacob would give anything to show those Yankees that not all Confederates are ready to surrender.

He gets his chance when he sees a real, live Yankee soldier walking down his street, on leave for Passover. But before Jacob can think of a way to be brave, the Yankee asks him for a piece of his matzoh.

This true story about a Jewish Yankee solider joining a Southern family's Passover meal shows how common values can overcome even the most divisive differences. Gathered around the Seder table, the group discusses what it means to be free—a subject as relevant today as it was during the War between the States and during the Exodus.
