On the Way to the Maimuna

Pesach is over.

Of course it was a lot of fun, and we all enjoyed the badly needed vacation, but nonetheless a collective sigh of relief rises from the house of Israel when we sink our teeth into the first freshly baked post-Passover pita or steaming hot pizza slice, straight from the oven.

It’s funny how this holiday has a serious problem with its focus. I mean, isn’t it supposed to be all about the Exodus from Egypt? So how come everybody seems so obsessed with the provisions? You only have to raid the internet to find plenty of examples of this phenomenon, such as this clip, and this one.

Personally — for the first time ever — I actually managed to calculate my matzah consumption in such a masterly way, that I ran out of the stuff when the holiday ended. For those of you whose planning wasn’t quite as spot-on, I can recommend this musical tip that would make both Martha Stuart and Odetta jealous.
