From April 25 through April 29, look around the JCC for Afi-ko-MAN, pictured here. The first one to find him each day will win a prize! If you find him in the building, go the front desk to see if you are the first locator of the day. Also, this year at your Passover Seder, in addition to the Prophet Elijah, save a seat for Afi-ko-MAN! Click here: afi-ko-MAN, to print him out to give him a spot at your table. Post your creative photos of Afi-ko-MAN on the Asheville JCC Facebook page!
And in case you didn’t know, the ‘real’ afikoman is the middle piece of matzah from the matzah plate that is removed towards the beginning of the Passover seder and then hidden. The kids at the seder are then invited to search for the afikoman which traditional became part of or was the dessert. Today, it is more often traded in for a small gift.
