So part of my day job at MyJewishLearning is to come up with new and zany schemes to… well, basically, to keep the site from seeming old and un-zany. This Passover season, I’ve decided that we should buy someone more matzah than they’ll ever need. Even if they have a whole lot of friends coming over and a studio apartment that needs re-insulation.
Here’s what I wrote:
What’s your best Passover story? It can be a horror story about Passover cleaning, or the story of how your parents met and fell in love at a Passover concert at college…or about the time your grandfather came to the seder dressed as a giant frog.
It can be silly. It can be serious, or sad, or romantic. It shouldn’t be long–tell us in a few sentences (200 words or fewer) the best, worst, or most interesting thing that’s ever happened to you during Passover. Or film it, make it 2 minutes or less, and send us the YouTube or Vimeo link.
Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, March 22, at 5 p.m. EST. Make sure to include your address and phone number. The winning entry will be announced on Wednesday, March 24, and published on MyJewishLearning.com. And we’ll send you the biggest box of matzah you’ve ever seen, just in time for Passover.
(Sorry, but we’re only able to send matzah to addresses in the United States and Canada.)
