Passover

Dear PSJC,

Passover is almost upon us.  The first seder begins this year Wednesday night, April 8th.  Because of the unprecedented nature of Passover this year, here are some suggestions about how to make Passover meaningful and safe this year—some will be quite familiar, others, will be unique to this year.  But hopefully altogether, they will help to make this Passover a good and meaningful celebration for you and all you love. 

The Conservative Movement has developed a number of important guidelines to help us all navigate the challenges of Passover 5780, in light of the restrictions placed upon us due to COVID-19.

Please read my 3/27 Letter to the Community and explore the guides and resources below. 

 

Chag sameach,

Rabbi Carie Carter

Sale of Hametz

This year, it is all-the-more important to sell your Hametz. This can be done with this online form.  It gives Rabbi Carie permission to sell your hametz to a non-Jewish person for the duration of Passover.   Just put your leftover hametz in a sealed cabinet/separate location in your home and allow me to sell it for you. Please fill out our online Mechirat Hametz form by Monday, April 6, 2020.
