In ridding our homes of chametz like cookies, snacks, cheerios etc we search for even a crumb and we get rid of it.
Over this year of Covid-19, we have come to understand how even the smallest 0.1 micron of coronavirus can wreak havoc in the body’s ecosystem.
Spiritually as well, it is easy to overlook small comments and insults, gossip and jealousy, overlooking a day of tefillin or a mezuzah on one of our doorposts. Those ‘small’ details wreak havoc in our spiritual ecosystem.
As we prepare for Passover and rid our homes of all leaven, we are invited to look internally to find those too often overlooked personal ‘crumbs’ that will allow our homes to be so much more healthy, kind and holy.
