In Workitu’s Ethiopian Jewish community, it’s traditional to break all the dishes before Passover begins. That might sound like fun, but Workitu is sad to see her favorite cups and pots go when it’s time to remake them free of chametz. Auntie Balainesh helps Workitu find the spirit of Passover renewal celebrated by this custom.
