    By Albert Fuchs, M.D.

    December 23, 2011 | 12:18 pm

    My mom yells at me: "Hurry up, it is almost Pesach and we haven't done anything yet."

    The memory goes back several years, when I was a teenager living with my parents and brother in our three-story building in western Tehran.

    Cleaning

    "Don't use my real name," insisted Devorah &'9;&'9;of Pico-Robertson. "I don't want anyone to think that I am not Pesach cleaning enough."

    Each year I search for ways to make the entire week of Passover come alive for my family -- not just the seders. I get excited about the holiday, always finding a surprise experience to create for my children, depending on their ages and stages. I passionately search the library and...
