Second Seder takes place on Sunday night March 28th.
We will include Yizkor and Hallel on Shabbat morning, April 3rd -the 7th day of Pesach during Shabbat Pesach services. Light your Yahrzeit candles BEFORE your Shabbat candles on Friday night, April 2nd.
To sell your chametz, send your name and email address to Rabbi Rosenstein at email@example.com. Include this sentience: “Please sell my Chametz.”
Chametz must be sold by Friday, March 26th at 1AM (8AM GMT). You must contact Rabbi Rosenstein by THURSDAY to have your chametz sold properly. Donations for this service are appreciated but not mandatory.
Here is a very helpful guide to Pesach preparation and more from Rabbi Haim Ovadia, an Orthodox rabbi who teaches at AJRCA and has a congregation in Maryland. This may not appeal to those who have been koshering their kitchens for the past 50+ years, but for those new at it, or in need of streamlining – you will probably find this helpful.
Amazon is offering a seder in a box: https://www.amazon.com/Passover-Essential-Religious-Articles-Ultimate/dp/B08TYCQWJT/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=1CJI4IVDAG9Q1&dchild=1&keywords=passover+in+a+box&qid=1615182859&sprefix=passover+in+a+box%2Caps%2C194&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzQTNHMlBYMlBOUTNHJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwODA4NjMxM09DNFowMDBCUVlLMSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNTU2NzAyTVpCQlBDNTVRS1I2JndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
Jewish Education Options
A new online program has started to teach people about 10 basic prayers in Judaism. It is entitled "10 Weeks, 10 Prayers", and unsurprisingly it involves 1 program each week (usually on Tuesday morning) for an hour. The first class, on the Kiddush, has already aired, but it and the others will be available on YouTube after each class has occurred. Go to this page to register, to get the written source sheets for each class, and to find the YouTube page for the recordings.
