Mimouna-A Sephardic Jewis Tradition

The Moroccan Jewish community celebrates the end of Passover with the traditional festival of Mimouna. It is a festival marking the transition from matzo to bread. The start of spring and the return to eating chametz.

The foods are varied and abundant. It includes: dates stuffed with marzipan, candied orange slices, jams made of carrot, prune and grapefruit, Middle Eastern grilled meats, and of course the traditional Moufleta ( pancake pastries drizzled with butter and honey)

Food, drinking, dancing and singing are the four corner stones of this holiday.
