Replenishment “Holiday” in Full Swing

Miami Beach…Within minutes after Passover had ended the newly opened Fialkoff’s Pizza Store was doling out pie after pie to people who had made reservations for the coveted post Passover treat days before the holiday. Fialkoff’s, a Catskills landmark pizza store, had recently opened a store in Surfside. Many Passover programs had “pizza parties” to formally end the holiday while in Brooklyn grocery stores reopened their year-round aisles of cereals and other “chametz” foods. One supermarket said that “the day after is one of our busiest days” as people rush to replenish depleted pantries and refrigerator/freezers. Rabbis associated with the Association of Kashrus Organizations (AKO) published a detailed list of stores that had complied with the Passover laws, and others that were not required to.
