Pesach is right around the corner and I am just past the nail-biting phase. This is where I just worry about Pesach. I walk from room to room in my house, feeling overwhelmed, not sure how I am going to do it all.
After 13 years of making Pesach, I know that this is an annoying but necessary part of the whole cleaning process. The anxiety that I generate during this time actually propels me forward into the next stage where I finally organize, clean and cook.
For those of you who subscribe to the, “Pesach cleaning is not Spring cleaning” bit, you might want to disregard the rest of the article. I am unmoving and quite stubborn about equating Pesach cleaning with Spring Cleaning. My feeling is that if I am cleaning already, then why not do a Spring Cleaning? Why should I clean twice? (I hope you heard the Talmudic singsong melody in the question and the movement of my thumbs as they went up and down in the air. Yes, I can do that even while typing!)
What I also feel strongly about is that my kids need to get in on the action. It is important that they actively participate in getting ready for the chag.

A brand new park is open on the former site of the Acacia Country Club (Cedar & Richmond) in Lyndhurst just in time for Pesach, hopefully with good weather coming along with it. This park features a few lakes, trails (1.7 mi paved loop path), and perhaps a soon-to-come sledding hill. The existing club house may one day be a good location for public events.
The Acacia Reservation, a 155-acre Cleveland MetroParks site, was bought for $14.75 million by Arlington, Va.-based Conservation Fund in December, which in turn donated the site to the parks system.
The Cedar Road park just outside Beachwood’s borders has a 1.7-mile loop — part of the paved path that was there when it was a country club — and green space that patrons can use.
Find out more about the park here. Details are a little minimal at this MetroParks link but you may wish to take a look at a Google Maps view of the park just below:

In Midwood, Brooklyn, there’s a luxury kosher grocery store called Pomegranate serving the modern Orthodox and Hasidic communities. It looks like a really nice Whole Foods. There’s a wide selection of kosher cheeses from Italy and France, wasabi herring, gluten-free ritual foods and nicely toned wood flooring.
