Don't Pass Over Passover
We hope all is well with you and your family.
In just two weeks we will be celebrating the holiday of Passover.
Here's what we have in store for Passover:
Sale of Chometz: For the eight day duration of Pesach we are forbidden to possess any form of edible Chometz. This would include bread, crackers, cereal, and whiskey. While it may be easy to dispose of a few slices of left over bread, to disown a box of cereal or a bottle of whisky is certainly a headache. For edibles with a long shelf life one can fill out the Chometz sale. The Chometz will be sold under the guidance of a rabbi to a non-Jew for the duration of the Holiday. Click here to sell your Chometz.
Shmurah Matza: The most important detail of the festive Seder meal is the Matza we eat. In addition to being biblically prescribed, the Kabbalists bring to our attention its spiritual dimension, referring to the Matza as the food of faith and health, which is very pertinent to us in the situation we currently find ourselves in. Thus at least for the two Seder nights it is best to use traditional, round, hand baked Matza. Shmura Matza is available for purchase at Chabad. Click here to order your Shmurah Matza.
Holiday Guide: The festival of Pesach has the good fortune that it has been embraced by virtually all Jews from all walks of life. In order to be well informed about the Seder and the numerous observances, a free user friendly guide is available upon request.
