This is sort of about food but its not exactly. I observe Passover tghe reform way in united states for 7 days. While I dont go to the extreme of throwing away all my food (and I understand why some do) I avoid bread and leavening. However, being reform I celebrate for 7 days like Israel. I learned that orthodox and some conservative Jews in usa observe and avoid leavening and bread for 8 days becsuse back in the day, they wanted to know tge are celebrate at the same time as Israel and were unaware of what the time differnce was. However, before Israel was created, did people in usa celebrate for 8 days or 7?
