Carrying z. burning wax taper, a wooden dish, and a small duster, the head of every orthodox Jewish home at nightfall today will brush together crumbs of bread from every nook and corner, and after he has gathered the little heap of crumbs and crust, he will burn them In a little bonfire tomorrow morning. The ceremonial marks the advent of the eight-day fast of the Passover, which officially begins at sunset to morrow evening. Passover, or "Pesach." commemorates the liberation of the children of Israel from Egyptian bondage more than 3,000 years ago, and one of .the striking char acteristics of tho holiday is the total absence of all leaven from the Jewish home for eight days. Instead of or dinary bread, matxoth or flat wheat cakes are used, the dough of which is not permitted to ferment. So scrupulous Is the Jewish .house wife in ridding the house of all leaven that she keeps all the ordinary kitchen utensils and tableware under lock and key. and uses a special set of crockery and cutlery for the week. The cere monial is In remembrance of the -bread hastily baked by the Israelites and eaten by them on the eve of thajr de parture from Egypt after four cen turies of bondage. JOHN A.
