Tonight we celebrate the first Seder of Passover, for which preparations have been in process in many households since well before Purim. In Israel there is only one Seder, while everywhere else, tomorrow night presents a second opportunity to extend the festivities.
The faculty and students of Beth Tfiloh, an Orthodox Day School in Pikesville, Maryland, are sharing their holiday spirit this year with a rousing rendition of Don't Sit on the Afikomen, a funny song that can be sung by everyone around the Seder table just for laughs, and as a reminder of how late the Seder could run if the hidden half matzah is not found in time for dessert.
We wish all of our readers a happy and a kosher Pesach. Enjoy your family and friends, sing the traditional songs and new ones like this, and feast on the specialties of this season, some of which we shared recipes for in recent days. We'll be celebrating this Passover in Jerusalem, and we'll be back with our usual mix of jokes, humor, music, and funny happenings on Thursday.
