Preparing for Passover is a little different than many holidays. Passover preparation requires an unusual type of household cleaning, making food inconsistent with one’s regular diet and ensuring all of the food is bought and Chamets free! Chamets are forbidden food for the 8 days of Passover as it signifies the abrupt action of the Israelites leaving Egypt; this was an immediate action disallowing time for bread to rise. Chamets are anything food products that contains wheat, rye, barley, spelt and oats.
