Selling Chametz

Chametz is leavened food forbidden on Pesach. According to Halachah (Jewish law), we may not own, eat or benefit from chametz during Passover. It has become a practice to temporarily sell one's chametz (via their rabbi) to someone who is not Jewish, who owns the chametz during Pesach and relinquishes it after Pesach

  • How to Add Meaning to Your Seder with Rabbi Shalom Bochner, Tuesday, March 19: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Are you starting to become bored with your Seder - "Same Old Same Old?" Want to put more zest into the Seder, not to mention wowing your family and friends with your new insights and analyses of what the Seder is really about. Join Rabbi Bochner for an evening of learning and discovery.

  • This is the Haggadah we use.  What do you use? With David Stein, Tuesday, March 19: 8:15 PM - 9:15 PM

Sidurim may vary within a Jewish stream of ritual tradition, but Haggadot can vary from household to household.  The worlds occupied by some Haggadot  can be so different from what we may be accustomed to that we may find it hard to imagine a Seder using them.  In our short workshop we will dig into several Haggadot to discover the world the compiler had in mind when they were composed.
