Finding and eating the Afikomen | tzafoon | צָפוּן
Traditionally, the Afikomen is hidden during the meal, for the children to find later. This ceremony reminds us that what is broken can be repaired and that what is lost can be regained, as long as we remember it and search for it.
The playfulness of finding the afikomen also reminds us that we balance our solemn memories of slavery with a joyous celebration of freedom. As we eat the afikomen, our last taste of matzah for the evening, we are grateful for moments of silliness and happiness in our lives.
