    The 18 minute game The 18 minute game Presentation Transcript

    • The 18 Minute Game
      A Passover Competition
    • Passover: “Remember the day on which you went forth from Egypt,
      from the house of slavery, and how God freed you with a mighty hand”
      - Exodus 13:3
      Slavery: 26 million slaves, indentured servants,
      And trafficked people in the world today. CRS estimates 17,500
      people enslaved and trafficked in the United States every year.
      18 Minutes: The sages established that the time necessary
      for the fermentation process to take place is eighteen
      minutes after water has been added to the flour; 18 minutes
      After water is added to flour, fermentation occurs and the
      matzo becomes chametz, or leavened.
    • A GAME CONNECTING OUR LIBERATION TO LIBERATION TODAY
      The 18 Minute Game
    • There’s a lot we can do about slavery today
    • In fact, here some you can do in 18 minutes
      Get informed about modern slavery
      Share info with friends on Facebook
      Email to your congress person
      Remove chocolate that isn’t free-trade from your house
      Ditto coffee
      Donate $18 to an anti trafficking organization
      Volunteer for an anti-slavery organization
      Tell a story at your Seder….
    • How do I play?
      Before the Seder
      Sign up online; give your Seder a name (Seders all over the country will be competing)
      If you prefer paper to a screen, print out materials for your guests beforehand.
      Erev Passover, go to the website and press
      You have 18 minutes
    • GAMEPLAY
      A checklist of activities will appear
      Click one, and instructions, email templates, or whatever is appropriate to that activity will appear
      Your team races around to accomplish as many slavery-fighting activities as they can as the game timer counts down from 18 minutes to zero.
      Each time you finish an activity, check it off on the website, and it will tally the score.
      You can compete for fun, or against Seders relatives are having in another part of the country, or try to win it all
      The site will track and announce individual winners, best city, most tasks done per-person, etc.
      Winning Seders get some kind of prize, maybe a basket of delicious breads to be delivered 8 days later
    • Questions/Tasks
      Workable idea? Catchy enough?
      How do we optimize game play?
      What needs to be done to implement?
      What needs to be done to publicize?
    • What’s a home run?
      A new Passover ritual that
      Creates something fun people want to add to their Seders
      Does something significant to fight slavery and human trafficking
      Ties the story of our liberation to an action that embodies our values
      Becomes part of the eder
