3. What other mitzvahs are given in this week’s parsha?
4. What animal was used for the Pesach service?
5. How was it to be prepared?
6. How was it to be eaten?
7. What day did they take the Pesach? What day was it slaughtered? What day did they leave Egypt? What day did they cross the sea?

14. Who is obligated in the mitzvah of Pesach? Who is barred?
15. If there is a mitzvah incumbent on all to slaughter the pesach, then how can a whole household join together on the same animal (as the verse says – and there is a halacha that for a kosher shechita, only one person can perform the slaughter)
