Did You Know? Countdown to Passover 2009 (03/29)


Did You Know?
Facts, Figures & Folklore about the Jewish Holiday of Passover

March 29 : 10 days till 1st night Passover

Did you know that before Passover can begin, one must thoroughly clean their house and rid it of all chametz, or leavened bread products?

Counter tops must be bathed in bleach, couch cushions must be overturned, and cooking surfaces must be burned clean. Even everyday plates, glasses and silverware must be put away and replaced with special ones just for Passover. This Jewish version of Spring Cleaning typically takes several weeks to complete.

Spring has arrived and with it comes the eight-day Jewish holiday of freedom. It’s time to clean out your chametz, open up a box of matzah and set up for your seder. So join our Passover festivities to learn all about this pinnacle holiday in the Jewish calendar.

We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to the first night of Passover on April 08th (begins at sundown)! So stop by again tomorrow.
