I am usually hesitant to write a resource list about Jewish holidays because of my complete lack of knowledge on the subject. I grew up in Kew Gardens Queens, a neighborhood where Jewish culture was aplenty, but somehow, none of it ever sunk in. This year, I thought ” just go for it and embarrass yourself in the name of Queens Mamas. You have done it so many times in the past! Just write a Passover roundup for the many parents who celebrate and let them tell you how wrong you are about what to do….” Well, here it is! Please help me, a partially Atheist, slightly Greek Orthodox, Mid Western Episcopalian by adding your comments below add contribute to this list of Passover resources, ideas, and funny stories.
Have a wonderful holiday!
