Everyone’s Sephardic During Passover

Comment of the week

(Ravi Joshi/Tablet Magazine)

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (provided he or she emails me at with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “Howard,” who writes, of the debate over whether quinoa is kosher for Passover, “Wheat, barley, spelt, rye, oats—all the rest is commentary, and rather annoying commentary at that.” He adds, “We’ve been honorary Sephardim (the honor is self bestowed) in this regard for many years, and feel not a twinge of guilt.” I, too, consider myself Sephardic precisely eight days per year.

Since “Howard” paraphrased Hillel, he gets the biography by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin.
