Pretty much just nerding out through comics, progressive politics and activism, queerity, and various fandoms. Currently heavy on the Tolkien, though you should see plenty superheroes (DC and Marvel), A:tLA, Harry Potter, and anything Whedon.

While I approve of any excuse to show the Prince of Egypt (I intensely love that movie), I’m not sure what it has to do with Holy Thursday?

Centuries ago, Ashkenazi rabbis made a ruling that certain types of food - legumes, rice, corn - were similar enough to grains that they were like to cause confusion during Pesach about what is chametz and so decided to include them in foods impermissible to eat during Pesach. They’re called kitniyot.
Sefardi and Mizrahi rabbis never made that ruling and so to Sefardi and Mizrahi Jews, they are permissible to eat.
While both systems are considered to be equally in accordance with Jewish law, Ashkenazi Jews are supposed to follow the Ashkenazi ruling and other Jews are not.
