HOLIDAY SHOPPING FRENZY … IN MARCH  
The frenzied weeks and days (and hours and minutes and seconds) before the Jewish holiday of Passover are often filled with shopping and more shopping.
Here, Israeli artist David Dzienciarski’s Market Before Passover recalls the frenzy in his hometown of Lodz, when the town’s Jews raced to purchase supplies, mostly food, for the holiday meal and the eight days following it. See more from the artist: CJH Catalogue
Judaism requires holiday observers to avoid eating certain foods on Passover, so many Jews will just buy all new food (and plates and table cloths and… and… ) for the holiday.

LIFE’S ROUGH WITH/WITHOUT MATZAH

Thank goodness there’s help if you’re without Matzah on Passover!

Some religious Jews raise funds to help their coreligionists in other communities to have the necessary supplies to fulfill religious observance. These stamps were from of a New York City charity that provided Matzah to poor Jews in Jerusalem in the 1940s for the Passover holiday.

COVER UP — YOUR MATZAH IS SHOWING
And, what better way to cover your Matzah than with this decorative Matzah cover from the early 20th century? Have something similar for your Seder?
The cover features Hebrew and Aramaic excerpts from the Passover meal (the seder), and scenes from then contemporary Eretz Yisrael (at the time British Mandate Palestine), ranging from the ancient western wall of the Holy Temple Mout to a matzah factory. 
Oh, and what’s matzah?  It’s an unleavened bread similar to the heavy bread the ancient Hebrews ate as slaves in Egypt. Jews eat Matzah for the eight days of Passover to commemorate their release from slavery.

SIT DOWN AND GET COMFY — Passover Starts in a week! 

Passover is coming, and it’s a time for resting, reclining and reflecting.  

And why not envision yourself doing that on chairs representing the Egyptian midwives Shifrah and Puah who helped bring up the baby-Moses who later led the Hebrews out of slavery in Egypt?  Right, why not…

The War That Made The Jews Americans

In April 1850, Peter Still, a slave, purchased his freedom from Joseph Friedman, a sympathetic Jewish businessman in Tuscumbia, Ala., for $500. When Still relocated with his family in the North, he stayed in touch with Friedman. His slave narrative, “The Kidnapped and the Ransomed … Being the Personal Recollections of Peter Still and His Wife Vina After Forty Years of Slavery,” was published in the 1850s and is included in a new exhibition, “Passages through the Fire: Jews and the Civil War,” opening on Sunday, March 10 at the Center for Jewish History.

HOPE YOU HAD A BALL THIS PURIM!
Though it was last weekend, some folks might still find distinguishing between Mordechai and Haman a little tough, what with that headache and whatnot. Here’s hoping your revelry was healthy and happy!
