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

March 18 : 11 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 us for our Did You Know? countdown to Passover, which begins at sundown on Monday March 29, 2010.

Awkward Moments Day
What is an Awkward Moment?

It is that brief moment in time when we feel inept, embarassed, unsure, or uneasy. They are those brief seconds which seem like minutes and those minutes which seem like hours. It is the time we lose some of our lofty self image. It is that humbling period of time when confidence is replaced by uncertainty and the arrogant become mere mortals again.
