Passover is a time of celebration for the Jewish community. To prepare for Passover, many Jews rid their homes of chametz and thoroughly clean their kitchens to remove all traces of chametz. This process is called kashering. Cedars-Sinai has a kosher kitchen to prepare food for patients who keep kosher, and it too is prepared for Passover.

I spend about 1-2 hours making rounds to see patients. That’s the best part.
