Hametz Roast and Marshmallow Toast! Eat Marshmallows and Do a Mitzvah
Friday, March 26 at 9:30am
WJC Parking Lot

The Torah informs us that hametz (leavened products) should not be eaten, seen, or even located in one’s house during the festival of Passover. Therefore, people go to great lengths and often create games to search the nooks and crannies to remove yeast products from their homes and burn them the morning before the holiday begins. This symbolizes cleaning out our minds and hearts, removing negative forces for renewal.

This year, as we prepare a little early, bring your gathered leftovers to WJC and we will burn our hametz together in the parking lot. We will supply the marshmallows to toast and eat as we watch our hametz burn!
