This page will keep you updated on all that you need to know about Pesach in our Community.

Now here is a quiz question for you. Which Mitzvah of Pesach, is obligated on us all before Pesach even starts?  Of course, it is ridding ourselves of the Chametz we own.  So we are not only forbidden to eat Chametz on Pesach, we also cannot own it.  One good way of getting rid of Chametz is, of course, to eat it; although, if you have a number of bottles of whisky at home, it may be a little difficult and unwise to finish them all before Pesach.  That would be too much getting into the spirit of Pesach!!  Another way is to sell our Chametz to someone who is not Jewish.  The sale is actually a proper sale, and the non-Jewish friend puts a down payment on the Chametz with an option to pay the rest after Pesach.  This is sufficient for him or her to acquire the Chametz. If he or she does not want to pay the rest, they can sell it back and receive back their deposit.  I sell members’ Chametz to our friend Frankie.

Click on the link below for Sale of Chametz form. If you fill this form in and return it to Jo in the office, this will give me the authority to sell your Chametz to Frankie for the duration of Pesach…and if you here a knock on the door during Pesach and see Frankie on the other side…you’ll know why.

Here you can click and find a set of  Seder Flashcards.  These are great visual aids that you can use at the Seder table for children and adults alike. We have used them in recent years and loved them.

And for some brief learning before Pesach – here are two Pesach pieces I wrote on the main commandments of Pesach and the meaning behind the four cups of wine.
