Passover at the E. Café

Passover is a holiday that mandates our complete involvement, not just during its eight days but also beforehand. Aside from the regular holiday obligations, we are also commanded (Exodus 13:3-7): "No leaven shall be eaten . . . for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread . . . and no leaven shall be seen of yours [in your possession]."

We accomplish this by cleaning and inspecting our homes before Passover, and eliminating chametz (leavened products derived from wheat, barley, oat, spelt or rye) from every room and crevice. This intensive cleaning takes place in Jewish homes throughout the world.

The E. Café closes annually during Passover week. A special Passover menu will be featured in the Marketplace during this time.
