Message from the Rabbi
As we approach the holiday of Pesach, we think of all the rituals, customs, and traditions associated with the holiday, and what this holiday represents to us personally and as a people. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be hosting a public seder this year. Please contact us in order to order shmurah matzah, kosher wine, and a seder-to-go kit.

You can find more information about the holiday below.

Wishing you and your family a kosher and happy Passover.

Sell your chametz
Use this online form to sell your chametz for Passover.
 

During Pesach, it is forbidden for a Jew to eat chametzhave it in his/her possession, or benefit from it.

It is traditional practice that every Jewish household sells its chametz to a non-Jewish person (who is not subject to the prohibitions of Pesach) and purchases it back after Pesach. A rabbi acts as an agent for the homeowner and enacts the sale of the chametz, ensuring that the sale satisfies both legal and halachic requirements. Please fill this form out by March 25th.

 
Order Matzah
Traditional handmade shmurah matzah is recommended for seder use.

Shmurah means watched, and it is an apt description of this matzah, the ingredients of which (the flour and water) are watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing.

Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to use Shmurah Matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate.
