Sell Your Chametz
 

Passover is the holiday in which we eat matzah and refrain from eating or possessing any chametz (leavened products). All chametz in our possession should be sold to a non-Jew for the duration of Passover. Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to a non-Jew on the morning before Passover and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends. 

Contact us so we can sell your chametz through a local Rabbi (which is the ideal way). Alternatively, you can do it online here (by the morning of April 19).

 

 
 
 
 
Maos Chittim
 
"All who are hungry, let them come and eat." We must ensure that our brothers and sisters have the means to celebrate freedom too.

Most of the people who are hungry will not be standing in our dining rooms as we begin our Seder, waiting for the invitation. As such, in preparation for the Passover holiday, it is age-old Jewish tradition to contribute generously towards funds that ensure that indeed everyone who is in need has the necessary provisions for the holiday—food, matzah, wine, festive clothing, etc.

Shmurah 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.
 
Contact us to receive your free samples of Shmurah Matzah to use at your seders, or to purchase  some by the pound.
