It’s the final count down to Pesach and my guest today says, you can relax cuz you really can do this in 5 days? I’m Yael Trusch and you’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess, welcome to the show. Meira Spivak is here. She’s the author of the new book How to Make Pesach in 5 Days.
I have to admit I approached this conversation with tremendous skepticism. I mean, I’m not in a frenzy or stressed but I have been dealing with Pesach already for a couple of weeks. I ordered matzah, wine, meat, chicken, clothing for the children, costco order, amazon, it’s all here in the house. So, I mean when I hear 5 days I’m like “What!? How does one do that?” But, I was very happily surprised. Number one, because it sounds like I do Pesach the Spivak way, and more than that, number two, because I think she’s right. She has an approach that we all need to hear. Hearing her speak reminded me of that well known saying by the Lubavitcher Rebbe that dust is not chametz and the children are not the korban Pesach – which I actually mentioned during the interview although I don’t think I got it quite right when I was talking to Meira.
Before we dive in, let’s go to the itunes section, I forgot to do that last week. And I also want to apologize for the sound last week – I did not realize that my mic was not plugged properly and I didn’t even catch it until the episode had aired. So my apologies that the sound on my end was not the best. It happens. Not ideal, definitely, but it happens. I felt so sad because it was such a good interview – I hope you were still able to enjoy it, with Chani Erenthreu.
I will say that you are the best audience. I put out a questionnaire last Wednesday night I believe and received an overwhelming amount of responses. I’m literally blown away by your generosity.
