Bedikat Chametz – Feather, Spoon, and Candle Kit

By October 1, 2020 No Comments

There’s an ancient Jewish custom called Bedikat Chametz (literally, “the search for Chametz). The night before Passover there is a search for any food that’s made of grain and water that have been allowed to ferment and “rise”. The candle is for light when searching, the feather is used as a broom, and the spoon as a dustpan. The next morning you are to burn the items used to find the Chametz, as well as any of the found Chametz. In the DJHS archive, we have a Bedikat Chametz kit along with the instructions for the blessing.
