Selling of the Chametz

The practice of selling chametz (leavened products) arose out of a desire to fulfill in detail the Torah’s requirement of having no chametz in one’s possession during Passover. If you would like to sell your chametz, fill out the form, available by clicking here.

To mark the end of Passover, you are invited to a virtual Mimouna. Sephardic Jews are known for Mimouna, the exuberant festival held on the evening and day after Passover, when we satisfy our cravings for chametz (leavened bread and other food prohibited on Passover) once again, indulging in sweet treats and baked goods. Make sure you register for this fun, intergenerational celebration, led by Danielle Konorti, our Shlicha (Israeli emissary).

Chocolate Seder

Hello Junior Youth Group Families,

We have loved staying connected with you over these past two weeks and we hope you are enjoying connecting with us as well. 

As you know, Passover is right around the corner! Every year we celebrate this amazing holiday as a youth group by hosting a chocolate seder with all of our friends, and we couldn’t have a year without our special seder. 

We would love if you could join us for a remote chocolate seder on April 5, 2020 from 11am to 12pm. Below is a list of the yummy items that we will be enjoying. If you are unable to gather any these chocolate treats, feel free to substitute, and join us whether you have all the chocolate treats or none… the seder will be fun no matter what you bring to the table, as long as you are with us! 

Seder Plate Items:

  1. Roasted egg (Beytzah): Kinder egg or any other egg shaped chocolate 
  2. Shankbone (Z’roa): Tootsie rolls or other forms of chewy hard candies
  3. Bitter herb (Maror): Dark chocolate
  4. Parsley/ Celery (Karpas): Strawberries or any other sweet fruits that go great with chocolate
  5. Charoset: Chocolate fudge, chocolate syrup, or any other type of thick dessert sauce 

You will also need milk, chocolate milk, or any other drink that goes well with chocolate for our four cups of ‘grape juice’. As well as some chocolate to dip the strawberries (karpas) in and chocolate covered matzah for Yachatz (breaking of the matzah) and the afikomen. If you would like to make your own chocolate matzah, here is a super yummy recipe!:
