Sephardic Passover Ritual

By NISSIM HAYWARD

Midrash Od Yosef Hai,
Los Angeles

The following are some of
the ways the traditions of
Passover, known as "Shabat
Sephardim" differ from the
Ashkenazic tradition:
• On the Sabbath before
Passover, known as "Shabat
Hagadol," it is not the
Sephardic custom to read
selections from the Hag-
gada.
• On the eve of Passover,
the statement of nullifica-
tion made after the search
for leaven is repeated three
times. The same procedure
is followed in the morning
after the leaven has been
removed.
• At
the
Seder,
Romaine lettuce is used
for "maror" (bitter herbs)
but not horseradish.
• There are many cus-
toms attached to the
"afikoman." The custom of
Baghdad, Iraq (one of the
oldest Jewish communities
__of the Diaspora) is as fol-
lows:

Before "Ma Nishtana" is
recited, the youngest son
goes out of the room, knocks
at the door, enters and ap-
proaches the head of the
household. The father then
askes him in Arabic,
"Where are you coming
from?" and the son answers
in Hebrew, from Egypt."
Father continues: "Where
are you going?" and he says,
"To Yerushalayim."
Father adds: "And what
are your provisions?" and he
recites "Ma Nishtana." At
the conclusion of the recita-
tion father wraps the
"afikoman" on the back of
his youngest son, thus mak-
ing him feel important and
interested to stay awake at
the Seder.
The above procedure is
followed by the com-
munities of Syrian and
Yemenite Jews with
slight variations. The
custom of the Jews from
Yugoslavia is to pass the
Seder plate over the
heads of all the members
of the household while
the "Ma Nishtana" is
being recited.
• The order of the four
questions for Sephardim is
as follows: Why do we dip
twice? Why do we only eat
matza? Why do we eat bitter
herbs? Why do we all eat re-
clining?
• Most Sephardim do not
have a separate cup of wine
for the prophet Elijah but
the Bukharian Jews fill a
separate cup at the begin-
ning of the Seder and divide
its contents among the
members of the household
when they prepare to drink
the fourth cup of wine.

Passion may be blind; but
to say that love is, is a libel
and a lie. Nothing is more
sharp-sighted or sensitive
than true love, in discern-
ing, as by an instinct, the
feelings of another.
— W.H. Davis

government plans call for
an eventual 5,000 families
on the site, not far from
Bethlehem.
Another of the leaders,
Sarah Craimer, of the
American Mizrachi-
affiliated group of 85
families headed for
Maale Adumin, stated
that the new town "will
help maintain Jerusalem
as a united city with a
large Jewish majority —
the eternal capital of Is-
rael. Our homes will lit-
erally form the eastern
bulwark of the city, a link
in the continuous chain
of new neighborhoods
and satelite towns which
is rapidly being built
around the north, east

and south sides of
Jerusalem."
Jim Bennett, a spokes-
man for the Israel Aliya
Center which organizes the
immigration of American
and Canadian Jews, com-
mented that the aliya cen-
ters "are giving full assis-
tance to the settlement
groups' recruiting efforts."
Sidney Greenwald,
chairman of the Or
Hashalom (Light of Peace)
group, which is also settling
in Maale Adumim, stated
on behalf of his 253-family
organization "I am con-
vinced that there are
lieterlly thousands more
across the country who are
interested in settling in
Judea and Samaria."
