        Pre-Pesach Learning with Rabbi Nagelberg

Ma Nishtana Ha-Shanah Hazeh? 

Celebrating Passover in the Shadow of October 7th

Thursday, April 18 at 11:00 AM

Join Rabbi Nagelberg for a conversation about how we are processing one of our tradition's most joyous holidays while Israel is at war. Together, we will look at ways Jews have celebrated Chag haCherut (the holiday of freedom) during previous wars and explore prayers and writings that have been crafted for this years Seders.

                             Selling Your Chametz

Since ownership of chametz (bread and other leavened products) is not allowed during Pesach, ideally all chametz in one's possession would be given away or destroyed before the holiday begins. Since this often represents a financial hardship, the practice arose for people to store away their chametz before Pesah and arrange to sell it for the duration of the holiday. By filling out the form linked below, you are appointing Rabbi Nagelberg to arrange the sale on your behalf.

What are Maot Hittim?

Jews preparing to celebrate Pesach have always been concerned that everyone in the Jewish community be able to do so. Maot Hittim is the special fund used to buy Passover supplies for those who need them, so that no one need be deprived of any supplies or be unable to prepare a Seder because of economic difficulty. To participate in this important mitzvah, you can make a contribution to the Rabbi's Discretionary Fund (marked “Maot Hittim”).

Please note: No contribution is necessary to authorize the rabbi to sell your chametz.

                         Connect and Prepare

In the Haggadah, we declare, “All who are hungry, come and eat; all who are needy come and celebrate Passover?” Opening our homes to Jews in need includes those who would otherwise be alone.

BSO’s “SederMatch” is the answer. Maybe you are looking for a place to share Seder or maybe you have a little extra room at your Seder table this year. Or maybe you can make some room? Many wonderful friendships have been made at Seder and we will make the right match for you.

Each year, the Rabbinical Assembly, the rabbinic organization of the Conservative Movement, publishes a handbook with the most updated halachic guidance on how to prepare your home for Passover, which foods are acceptable to be eaten during Passover, and other important points of knowledge for this year's observance of Pesach.
