Pesach Lecture: The Mitzvah of Eliminating Chametz

We are excited to launch JLI's Advanced Learning Initiative, offering a unique opportunity to experience authentic, in-depth, Yeshivah-style Talmudic analysis.

Please join us on Thursday, April 14 at 8:15 pm (immediately following Maariv) at the Jewish Learning Centre for a thought-provoking Pesach lecture, presented by Rabbi Avrohom Altein. We will explore whether the mitzvah is to actively eliminate chametz, or if its elimination is just a way to ensure you don't own it come Pesach.

This class is dedicated to the loving memory of Avraham ben Peretz (18 Shevat) and Chaya bas Nachum (25 Tammuz), by Paul and Helen Stein and family. Free admission and open to all! Click here to register… Read More »

Yud Aleph Nissan Farbrengen

This Tuesday, April 19, marks the birthday of The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory. Please join us at 8:30 pm (after Maariv) for a farbrengen, a gathering of souls, to commemorate this auspicious day.

Born in the Ukrainian-Russian town of Nikolaev in 1902, the Rebbe spent the century's and his childhood in pogrom-ridden Czarist Russia, the 20's battling the Stalinist attempt to eradicate Jewish life in the Soviet Empire, the 30's in Berlin and Paris. In 1941 he escaped Nazi-occupied Europe and settled in New York, where for the next 50 years he transformed the very fabric of Jewish life in every corner of the globe.

Remember to sell you chametz!

Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Pesach, any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. All such chametz, as well as all chametz utensils that were not thoroughly cleaned, should be stored away. The storage area should be locked or taped shut for the duration of the holiday.

Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover, and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends.

Note: Leading halachic authorities have ruled that online authorizations are acceptable for the purpose of selling chametz. The… Read More »

Shmurah Matzah now available

Shmurah Matzah is quite unique. The word "Shmurah" means “watched” and is an apt description of this Matzah. From the moment of harvest, through the milling, sifting and packaging, continuous supervision guarantees that no water comes in contact with the grain and flour. Any such contact would cause leavening and disqualify it from use on Pesach. The Matzah is then kneaded, shaped and baked completely by hand, guaranteeing that it will never fall beyond immediate personal supervision. As the verse states, “You shall guard the matzot” (Exodus, 12:17).

Kabbalah teaches that the “Shmurah Matzah” we eat during the Seder is 'food of faith' - giving us strength in our belief in G-d, and… Read More »
