Caturday: Final Day of Passover Edition



The 8th and final day of Passover 2022 is celebrated today.

Many people have the custom to make sure that the matzah does not come in contact with moisture, lest some leftover flour become leavened. On the eighth day of Passover, this restriction is relaxed, and matzah can be mixed with water and other liquids to create Passover favorites like matzah balls and matzah brei. Read the deeper meaning behind the laxity on the eighth day.
