SELL YOUR CHAMETZ
Deadline: Wednesday, April 5 by 8:30 am

No leaven shall be seen or found in your possession during Passover.
- Deuteronomy 16:4

Much as we may try to eat up our chametz before Passover, it's not really an achievable task. The Rabbis introduced the practice of “selling” chametz to a non-Jew for Passover.  You can authorize Rabbi Werbow to do this by filling out the form below.

Shabbat Services on Saturday, April 8

[You are] a garden spring, a well of fresh water . . .
Shir Ha'Shirim 4:15
 

Song of Songs (“Shir Hashirim”) is a poetic conversations between lovers, usually seen as a metaphor for the loving relationship between God and the Jewish people. It is read each year during the Shabbat that falls during Passover.

MAOT HITIN/מעות חטים

Deadline: Tuesday, April 4 by 6:00 pm

It is incumbent upon all of us to assure that everyone in our midst can provide the necessary food for a Passover Seder and for the general holiday observance. With the approach of spring and Passover, it has long been the tradition of congregations to collect Maot Hitin (literally wheat money), which is used to help poor Jews prepare for Passover, the great festival of liberation. 

Please contribute via this form or by check marked Rabbi's Discretionary Fund - Maot Hitin so we have adequate funds to help the many Jews who will be turning to us prior to Passover.  Your generosity will enrich other Jewish families physically and spiritually, as they celebrate this holiday of freedom.

Chag Sameach from all of us at Tifereth Israel.

Sincerely,

Rabbi Michael Werbow
