Passover Matzah! Breaking News!

Horseradish Alert!  The Festival of Passover, we must recall, is the Festival of Freedom. And freedom, we must realize, is never - ever - to be taken lightly.  

Abq Jew firmly believes that, when confronting vital questions about politics, philosophy, or ... ahem ... religion, the life-affirming answer is always

More Freedom!

And Abq Jew is proud to say that our nation's greatest president strongly agrees.

As everyone who has seen Lincoln The Movie (and if you haven't, you should) now knows (if they didn't before), Doing The Right Thing Ain't Always Easy.

There are the politicians who oppose; there are the people who object; and there are the members of the Fourth Estate (can anyone name the first three?): The Press.

What if, Abq Jew hears you ask, today's news media had covered the Passover story?

Our friends at have, thankfully, answered this question for us. Here is their newest 2013 video, Passover: Breaking News.

Wait a minute! Abq Jew hears you cry. Aren't these the same guys Abq Jew mentioned in his classic 2011 blog post, Fun At The Seder, Laptop Included?

Yes, they are! Abq Jew cheerfully responds. And if you missed it then - here is, right now, the greatest Passover video in the history of the world - Google Exodus!

But it's soon to be Shabbos HaGadol, the Great Sabbath. Or, as it's known in Abq Jew's house, the Last Weekend. Maybe you're cleaning for Passover? 

Last year, in his classic 2012 blog post, Pesach As She Oughtta Be, Abq Jew brought you Rebbetzin Rivka Leah Zelwig, a - no, the renowned authority on Pesach cleaning.

Missed it? Too bad. Oh, wait a minute! You're in luck!

Please note that: a) there can be no true cleaning for Pesach without extensive use of power tools; and b) Rebbetzin RLZ is wearing protective eyewear.  Follow her example.

Horseradish Alert!
So far this year, the only places Abq Jew has discovered where
Kosher for Passover horseradish may be purchased are
Chabad of New Mexico / Albuquerque
Keller's @ Eubank & Candelaria

Smith's @ Wyoming & Academy (near the JCC)

Smith's @ Tramway & Central (Four Hills)

Shabbat Shalom, Albuquerque!
Good Shabbos, New Mexico!
A Zissen Pesach, World!
