the Jewish Holiday of Passover

Did you know that Kosher for Passover refers to foods free of chametz?
During the eight-day Jewish holiday of Passover, the consumption of leavened bread and other fermented grain products – known as chametz – is forbidden.
The term “Kosher for Passover” thus refers to foods that do not contain chametz, and are therefore permissible during the eight-day holiday of freedom. In order to earn the Kosher for Passover label, packaged foods must be certified by a rabbi.
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 April 18, 2011.
