Celebrating Passover – A Few Fundamental FunFinds

To all our Jewish Funfindsblog followers, we want to wish you a very happy Passover.  This year, the first night of Passover is on Friday, April 6, 2012.

If you are interested in learning more about this holiday, you can find out about the traditions and history of the holiday here.

Traditionally, Jews do a formal search for remaining leaven (Hebrew chametz),  after nightfall on the evening before Passover.

A fun custom activity to do with your kids/grandkids is to turn off the lights and conduct this search by candlelight (or flashlight for obvious reasons), using a feather and a wooden spoon.Because the house is assumed to have been thoroughly cleaned by the night before Passover, 10 morsels of bread smaller than the size of an olive are traditionally hidden throughout the house in order to ensure that some chametz will be found.

This information was compiled from:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feast_of_Unleavened_Bread

No discussion of Passover can be complete without a recipe for matzo ball soup. This one is adapted from the Carnegie Deli.
