"The Stories We Tell and What Stories Tell Us: Storytelling on Passover and Beyond." in conjunction with Project Zug

Telling our story is something we do so frequently that we rarely think about it. Unconsciously, we choose how long to speak for, which details to highlight and which to omit, and look for the impact our telling has on the listener. On Pesah, this process is moved to our conscious behavior as we're called upon to recount the Exodus from Egypt as if we were there, as if it were our own personal story.

In this class we'll investigate the role of storytelling in the Seder and also beyond it. What are the stories that we tell? Why do we tell them? How can we get more out of them? And how can telling a familiar story in a new way change who we are?

Selling of Hametz/Mekhirat Hametz
Since ownership of hametz (bread and other leavened products) is not allowed during Pesah, ideally all hametz in one's possession would be given away or destroyed before the holiday begins. This often represents a financial hardship, therefore the practice arose for people to store away their hametz before Pesah and arrange to sell it for the duration of the holiday.
