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

April 02 : 06 days till 1st night Passover

Did you know that during Passover, Jews of Eastern European descent (known as Ashkenazic Jews) abstain not only from eating chametz, but also from eating kitniyot — corn, rice and legumes.

This stringency is not observed by Sephardic Jews, who descend from the 14th century Spanish Jewish community where eating kitniyot was permissible.

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.

April 02 : 10 days till Easter

Did you know that the most popular treat to hide inside an Easter egg is jellybeans?

Americans consume more than 16 billion of them at Easter — enough to circle the circumference of the globe three times!

Easter is the time of springtime festivals, a time to welcome back the Tulips, the Crocuses and the Daffodils. A time for Christians to celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Christ. And a time of chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, and colored eggs!

So join our Easter festivities as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Easter on April 12th!
