I bring a little fun to the Jewish festival of Passover with some magic. I try to incorpoate the theme of Passover into the magic. Does anyone have any ideas they might share?

Aside from Simon Aronson’s “Red See Passover”?
Impossible card location in the Afikoman?

Matzah Balls made out of white sponge. Make your own and do a routine, even Benson Bowl routine with them.

Can you expand on the impossible card location in the Afikoman?

Typical "impossible card location" plot: card selected from deck vanishes and shows up in a wallet, in a shoe, in a book, under the spectator's bar glass. Just suggesting it shows up in the cover or wrapper used for the Afikoman.
Lots of ways to make the selected card vanish including the simplest .. have a card with a small piece of double-backed tape on its back at the top of the the deck (repositional tape or glue is best). Force a card and have spectator place it on top of the deck (it sits on top of the sticky card). You cut the deck burying the double card in the middle. Snap your fingers  then turn the deck over. Face up, remove a few cards or so at a time showing the selected card has vanished. The duplicate of the force card is already wrapped with the Afikoman.

Make sense?

A couple of years ago an acquaintance of mine actually vanished the Afikoman.  He wrapped it up, snapped his fingers and opened the wrapper to show it was gone.

You could wrap the afikomen up in the Devil's Handkerchief and make it disappear. But using the Devil's Handkerchief on Passover, is that kosher?

This is exactly the method my acquaintance used.  He did not seem troubled by the metaphysical implications 😉
