Lego Star Wars Passover, Childhood Autism and Giving Back Jewishly

Meet our new volunteer Aiden.

Aiden is an almost 9 years old boy with high functioning autism.

Aiden’s mom is a member of the OneShul community, and asked Aiden if he would like to contribute to our Passover section at PunkTorah. So Aiden, Mr. Craftsman Extraordinaire, built us the Exodus narrative…out of Star Wars legos.

Aiden’s mom sent us a message:

“Aiden has so many wonderful questions and says he is amazed he is part of something so awesome.”

Aiden, thank YOU for being so awesome!

    Wow that’s fantastic Aiden. Pesach is such fun. I got my feet licked by a 3 year old ‘lion’ under the table during a reenactment of the plague of wild beasts at our Seder.
    More fun next year. Chag sameach everyone.

    My kids loved seeing this, they’ve been inspired to try their own lego re-enactments :) thanks for sharing!

    Send us their re-enactments and we’ll post them!

    Great inspiration for my 11 y.o. Asperger boy who would only stick to instructions when it comes to build with Legos! Thank you, Aidan! Chazak u’Baruch!<3
