The Great Afikomen Hunt 2018

March 25 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

In the first annual Great Afikomen Hunt, teams (as small or as big–as many as you can fit in a single vehicle legally–as you’d like) work together, driving around the Triangle area, to check off and photograph Passover-themed items on a list. Will your strategy be to find a lot of the easier items for fewer points or to tackle the more difficult, hard-to-find items for some major points? Either way, you’ll need to conjure all your creativity, critical thinking, sense of humor, and getaway driving prowess in this family-friendly Afikomen-turned-scavenger hunt. Three lucky teams will win up to $500 in JCC gift cards to split amongst each team member. Team winnings can be spent on programs, classes, and snacks! $500?! That’s a lotta challah!



Able to gather a whole team, from 2 people to however many fit in your vehicle? $10 per vehicle/team

Want to be matched with a team? $5 per individual


The day’s agenda:

1:30pm: Registration begins at the Levin JCC

2:00pm: Let the games begin! Teams have only TWO hours to find items on their scavenger hunt list and accumulate the most points.

4:00pm: Return to the Levin JCC

4:15pm: The final stage, the hunt for the Afikomen, begins! Whoever finds it first will win potentially game-changing points!

4:30pm: Awards ceremony

5:00pm: Event ends
