Seder Day Food Dilemma

10 Matzo-Free Suggestions

Most Rabbis agree that after sunrise on the first Seder day, and until the Seder begins, the halacha (Jewish law) is that one must not consume any baked matzo or matzo meal products. So, the question is what should we eat – NO chometz, No matzo products?
We present some ideas from our readers, and for our readers. Of course, keep in mind that kosher for Passover products should be used. 

Fish or chicken schnitzel made with potato starch
Blintzes or filled crepes made with potato starch
Chicken, beef or vegetarian cholent
Stuffed cabbage
Potato kugel
Chopped liver, chopped egg salad, tuna salad, white fish
Salads with dressing
French fries, cheese fries
Loaded baked potatoes
Fruits, ice cream, yogurt

We have recently discovered kosher for Passover gluten free Lieber's Yum Yum Crackers—looks like crackers, tastes like crackers but made with no matzo products. These will work perfectly for Seder day.

The Kafra Haggadah

The Haggadah is the centerpiece of every Passover Seder. Some of the richest artistic treasures of the Jewish people are found in the illustrations of the classic illuminated manuscripts of the Passover Haggadah, some dating back to the medieval period.

Our friend, Estee Kafra, cookbook author, and co-founder of KosherScoop.com has just brought to our attention that her great grandmother Fradel Kahan-Frankl and Fradel's son, Moshe Tzvi, Estee's grandfather, illustrated a magnificent Haggadah, known as the Kafra Haggadah, one that is said to have "dazzling imagery, breathtaking calligraphy and lavish ornamentation combining to create a visually stunning masterpiece in the realm of illuminated Haggados".

The Kafra Haggadah follows in the traditions of the classic illuminated Haggadahs. However, instead of being produced by unknown Jewish artists during the Renaissance, it was produced in Budapest, Hungary through an intense, year-long artistic collaboration between Fradel Kahan-Frankl and her son Moshe Tzvi. The name Kafra (Estee's name) is actually composite of the hyphenated last name.

The Kafras felt the need to create the Haggadah because of a disturbing experience. One day, Fradel and Moshe Tzvi decided to visit the Budapest museum to view the illuminated Kaufmann Haggadah, (14th century, Catalonia) but they were turned away. All efforts and entreaties to view the Haggadah proved futile. Frustrated, they decided that they could produce their own illuminated Haggadah in the classic medieval style.

And thus the Kafra Haggadah was born. Working on 24-inch by 12- inch panels, Moshe Tzvi wrote the text of the Haggadah in a very elegant and stylized form of the traditional calligraphic letters used for holy scrolls. Fradel painted elaborate decorative frames for the pages. She also added artistic adornments to the initial letters and painted many miniature representations of the dramatic scenes described in the text as well as some full page illustrations. The work continued for an entire year, which she often described as one of the happiest times of her life.
The family left Hungary after the war, and The Kafra Haggadah was published in 1947 by Philip Feldheim Publishing Company, then located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

In 2011, the family decided to release new edition, which, because of advances in printing technology, is even more vibrant than the first.

Fradel Kahan-Frankl passed away many years ago, but Moshe Tzvi survives her. The new edition is the gift of the family to their beloved grandfather. May he live to enjoy it for many years to come.

Buy Israel Week

You can support our friends and family in Israel when you buy products made in Israel. From February 25-March 3 Buy Israel Week gives you that opportunity.

In 2005 a global movement was launched for a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel. Since then, events with Israeli speakers, Israeli universities, stores that carry Israeli products, and Israeli companies have been boycotted with the goal of delegitimizing Israel.

The goal of BUY ISRAEL WEEK is to combat the efforts of the BDS protestors through purchasing power. Every purchase can help make a difference. Many Israeli institutions are responsible for scientific research to cure disease; Israeli companies develop technology that we use in our cell phones and computers, and new energy technologies are used in other countries. Whether switching your brand of coffee or purchasing a gift, you can actively make the decision to buy Israel.

The effort is organized by jdeal.com, The Jewish Week Media Group of NY, Washington Jewish Week, Florida Jewish Journal, Tribe Media Corporation, the Jewish Standard of New Jersey, the Chicago Jewish News, Texas Jewish Post, J. the Jewish News Weekly of Northern California and Jewish News of Greater Phoenix, Philadelphia Exponent, Baltimore Jewish Times.–in the United States, as well as Israel-America Chamber of Commerce, Manufacturers' Association of Israel, Israel Export and Cooperation Institute, Conference of Presidents, United with Israel and Stand With Us.

KosherEye supports the effort! We encourage you to
