Everyone searches for the Afikoman

Finding the Afikoman is symbolic of healing.


The story is eternal -- it repeats itself again and again. After the Exodus, we continue to wander in the desert on our way to the Promised Land.

In every generation there are those who seek our destruction, but the Holy One saves us from their hands.

We, therefore, are in duty bound to thank, praise, adore, glorify, extol, honor, bless, exalt and revere Him, who performed for us and for our forefathers all these wonders. He brought us forth from bondage unto freedom; from sorrow unto joy; from mourning unto festivity; from darkness unto great light; and from servitude unto redemption; and therefore let us chant unto Him a new song. Hallelujah!
