Escape the desert: Virtual Escape Room

You wake up on the first morning of Passover and something doesn't feel right. You sit up, open your eyes, and realize that you're no longer safely social distancing from your childhood bedroom. You're in the middle of the desert! How are you going to make it back home before the first night seder? You set out on a mission to escape the desert, just like your Jewish ancestors fled Egypt. See if you have what it takes to escape the desert and get back to your house before the last bowl of matzo ball soup is gone! If you want an extra challenge, time yourself and see if you can beat your friends. Join us on Tuesday for a zoom call, or complete the escape room at any time on your own!
