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.

The image below is not an endorsement (!) but a conversation-starter. What's your reaction?

Happy Passover, til the crunchy end.
