Attention Children: Chametz Removal Fun at the J. . . Win Prizes!

Joelle Kelenson on Tuesday, March 31, 2015

How do the Jewish people celebrate our exodus from Egypt after being enslaved by the Pharaoh for 400 years? With seders (festive meals), matzah (unleavened bread), and Passover fun, of course.  
Many of us at the J are celebrating Passover, which begins on Friday night and lasts until the following Saturday. To commemorate the events that are the basis for the holiday, we do the following:

  • tell the Passover story at the seder;
  • eat matzah, and
  • go through our homes and remove any chametz (or products that are prohibited on Passover, such as those containing wheat, oats, rye, barley, and spelt).

Here at the J, we will be removing OUR chametz starting tomorrow until Friday, and WE NEED YOUR HELP. Throughout the building are hidden pieces of chametz that look like this:

Please help us find the chametz! Once you locate a piece, please turn it into the front desk for a tasty Kosher for Passover treat or a fun toy to enhance your seder! Happy Passover!
