MarketFriday – Shopping during the Jewish Passover

in marketfriday •  5 months ago 

Hi, Steemit!!!

  Today is #MarketFriday!!! From today throughout the week, shops in Israel will look like this:


Passover begins, so you do not buy in the stores bread, buns, cakes, pastries. All where there is yeast is removed from sale. Entire sections of shops are closed with oilcloth showing that this product is not available now. Especially the bread departments! Buy you can only mazza.



The Bible says that when ancient Israel celebrated the Passover by the Law of God, they ate unleavened bread. Here it is called mazza. The ancient Israelites did not have fermented bread or bread cooked with leaven during this holiday. Modern Israel removes much more products during this period, considering that they are not suitable for this holiday. For example, chocolate! I do not understand why chocolate is considered not kosher. Or buckwheat ....



I do not like to eat only unleavened bread :))))) so we try to buy products in advance for this period :)

Have a nice Friday !!!

Howdy tali72! No I've never seen that over here, I think it's unique to Israel! Thanks for the informative post!

I am from the Tri-State Area of New York Connecticut and New Jersey... We have a huge Jewish population and yes!!! Passover used to be a very big deal there.

So yes! Those 8 days - we were very aware of.

I love that you shared this part of your culture with us, it is always interesting as I know the least about where you living. I look forward to seeing what you have every week!

Hehe! I am with YOU on the unleavened bread! It reminds me of how they used to cover up beer on Sunday! LOL

Thanks for an awesome post!

#MarketFriday loves you!
