A farewell to matza

.

Today is the 7th and last day of the Passover week in Israel.
Last Friday our town's Chabad rabbi and rebbitzin arranged a big community seder with about 45 guests.
It was nice, and four hours long, and at the end the men danced in a circle with gusto!
But because it was the Sabbath, photography was not allowed.  Sorry!


We have been eating matzo for a week.
Only on Sunday, when the stores open again after Shabbat, will we be able to go buy BREAD.
And I bet the big boxes of matzot will be deeply discounted.  :)
Chag sameach and Shabbat shalom.

If you're in the mood to see more about the seder and Pesach, please see my older posts under Passover.

I've never eaten it- though it is available here at this time of year. Grocery stores have stocked Passover items for years during the run up to the occasion.

William, such a lacuna! You must taste some matsa ASAP. :)
(Of course, you probably won't want to buy a whole kilo of it, though.)

Cloudia, thanks, blessings to you too, "cuz."

I normally associate Yom yovim with friends, family, good wines, clean table cloths, good silver and catching up with reading. Except for Pessach.... which I associate with grubby kichens and constipation :(

Have a great year!

Hels, hahaha! That's funny.

Alice, depending on what you spread on matsa, it can be quite good. :)
