Til the crunchy end
A friendly person asked me yesterday, "How was your Passover?"
I answered, "It was and still is great, thanks!"
For many people, the holiday began and ended last Wednesday night.
But it's actually an 8-day holiday and the R. Eliyahu of Vilna taught that there is a special benefit from eating a little matza every day all the way to the end. Matza can be nutritious, but it doesn't satisfy like leavened bread. It is good for us to spend a week every year relating to food in this way.

Happy Passover, til the crunchy end.
