Desperately seeking Chametz

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/tribe/article/desperately_seeking_chametz_20110316

When our ancestors fled slavery in Egypt thousands of years ago, they didn’t have an opportunity to plan for the trip: They gathered what they could, grabbed their unleavened bread and high-tailed it out into the desert. Today, when we prepare for Passover, which commemorates their exodus, we have a little more time. In fact, the preparation for the holiday is nearly as significant as the holiday itself. Clearing one’s home of chametz is an ancient twist on the concept of spring cleaning.
