Bubbie Rose and Bubbie Ida Flora love hosting their entire extended family for Passover. The table is laden with food, the apartment is bursting with people and love. But, the Seder can’t end without the afikomen (the last piece of matzah) and nobody knows where it is. The children search high and low, in places likely and unlikely, in smelly places and tasty ones. They find many other missing things, but not the afikomen. Working together, and a willingness to laugh at ourselves will help us find the things we could not find alone.
