Bedikat Chametz – The Hunt for Chametz

Tuesday, April 7

How-to video available on BimBam for viewing anytime

Bedikat chametz, or the hunt for chametz, is a wonderful ritual to try out with your family the night before Passover. In this short how-to video, Piera and Josh explain how they set up a scavenger hunt for their young child and why it’s a meaningful part of Pesach for their family. Anyone can do this ritual…and it’s lots of fun to play hide and seek with bread or cheerios or whatever chametz you may have on hand. Plus, the next day you get to burn it! Happy hunting!

It is traditional for first born males (and we include females also) to engage in study on the morning before the first seder to remember that the first born Israelites were spared from the 10th plague. However, all are invited to share in this opportunity to prepare ourselves for the joy of Pesach!
