The Horseradish Challenge™, launching this Passover season, is a video challenge shared over social media in which friends and family members dare each other to eat one teaspoon of horseradish on camera – showing their support for innovative, high-impact youth programs at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The Horseradish Challenge is all about hope and possibility. Traditionally, Jews eat bitter herbs at Passover as a reminder of the struggles of past generations. This year it can also be a gesture of affirmation among Jews and non-Jews alike – and a way to encourage good will and alleviate hardship.
So consider lending your palate to the cause. A few moments of sweat, tears and facial contortions will provide joy and laughter to many – and you’ll be part of creating a better future for Israel.
