If you have the chance to share a holiday with us here in Israel and if it is Pessach (Passover) Seder meal you may see some, what looks like very strange behaviour.....in the middle of the holiday meal you will see all the young people get up from the table and start opening cabinets, lifting rugs, pulling chairs out from the wall, turning over sofas, looking inside lamps and such...NO they have NOT gone crazy, they are looking for the Afikoman. The literal translation is "dessert", but the catch here is that by custom a piece of Matzot (the traditional unleavened bread eaten on this holiday)is hidden...and the meal cannot come to a conclusion until the piece that is hidden is FOUND !! Also it is a custom to "reward" the finder, so the kids have to find it ^O^
