Passover Cleaning

Did you know spring cleaning has its roots in Passover? Before the holiday, we thoroughly clean our houses, making sure there’s no chametz. 

There’s a tradition to search one’s home for any lingering chametz by candlelight the night before the holiday begins – with a feather and wooden spoon to sweep up any crumbs you might find. The crumbs, spoon, candle and feather are then burned the next morning!
