We have concluded, for now, our discussion of honoring parents.

For laws relevant to Pesach, please see the "Pesach" labels in the side menu. I expect to add a few more over the next few days.

The Afikoman is supposed to parallel the korban pesach (paschal offering); indeed, some consider the Afikoman essential to fulfilling the mitzvah of eating matzah at the seder.

Because of the parallel to the korban pesach, one may not eat anything after the afikoman; the korban pesach was supposed to be eaten to the point of satiation.

One may drink water afterward, though, and many permit other beverages. The only beverage which is clearly prohibited is a beverage which would qualify for the Four Cups.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 478:1; Mishneh Berurah 478:2)

Have a great day,
