What can you do with your leftover matzah after Passover?


Eric Geboff, executive director of Jewish Family Services of Greater Orlando (JFSOrlando), is presented with 10 copies of 'What to Do with Your Leftover Matzah, the Fifth Question: A Guide to the Perfect Passover Seder,' by author Myrna Ossin.

JFS Orlando's Pearlman Emergency Food Pantry receives hundreds of leftover boxes of matzah and other kosher products every year from local stores after the Passover holiday. Myrna Ossin's book, "What to Do with Your Leftover Matzah, the Fifth Question: A Guide to the Perfect Passover Seder," is a useful guide for the novice or experienced cook to make the perfect Passover Seder, or otherwise use those leftover items. JFS Orlando Executive Director Eric Geboff is pleased to have this resource at JFS Orlando to help those who benefit from the Pearlman Emergency Food Bank. In it are Ossin's original recipes and those old family favorites requested year after year. For those not familiar with the customs of the Seder meal, she has added some history, ritual explanations and different traditions of Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews, meal plans and a Passover meal timeline. In addition, the book includes a metric conversion chart, a listing of utensils, and all the equipment needed to produce a Seder with basic kosher rules. Newish Jewish and those wanting to understand the holiday will enjoy reading about Passover, trying the recipes and seeing the many colorful photos.

Ossin also will be teaching a few recipes at Maitland Library's new kitchen on Sundays, March 5, 26 and April 9 at 3 p.m.
