Denver, CO — For most Jews, Passover is a time to reflect on God rescuing our people from slavery in Egypt. Though Passover shares a common theme with all Jewish holidays: they tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat. Because of this, Passover revolves around food, and for some, the food we eat during Passover, especially home Seders, has become a big foodie paradise. Unfortunately, first world tragedy struck over the weekend as a young Jew found out the hard way that not all of her favorites belong at a Seder.
“I was so excited to share my homemade Kombucha with everyone at Seder this weekend,” says 27 year old Tamar Schwartz. “It was my first batch that I was going public with. I brought it to Seder and then my Rabbi told me Kombucha isn’t Kosher for Passover…what??? It’s because there’s yeast in it. I literally died when he told me that. Like, I seriously cannot even. Why me??? I worked so hard on making this Kombucha. I understand there’s yeast in it now and we can’t have yeast during Passover, but the nerve of him. Why can’t he just thank me for all my hard work and for actually bringing something to share with everyone? This is just so unfair.”
Sadly, thousands of millennials literally die everyday from first world problems, but the real problem here is thinking that being excited about something trumps the dietary restrictions of our people. Make sure you check every ingredient before making any assumptions. It’s not hard to rise to the occasion.
