New App to Lend a Big Hand to Pesach Preparations


pesachWith all of Pesach’s customs, shopping, cooking and meal planning, even experienced mothers can find the Yom Tov preparations overwhelming. How is it possible not to enter Pesach  in a frenzy of cooking, cleaning and shopping?

That was the motivation behind the all-in-one Pesach app, dubbed the “Passover Assistant.” The app’s features range from a Pesach meal planner and shopping list to an interactive “Mah Nishtanah” trainer for learning to chant the Four Questions. The hope is to take off some of the pre-Yom Tov load and make  Pesach a happy and enjoyable experience for all.

The app has been released on the four leading mobile platforms; iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Amazon Kindle and can be downloaded free of charge.
