Indoor Picnic
All women are invited to join
lesson six of this year’s Rosh
Chodesh Society course entitled
“Soul Mates – Jewish Secrets
to Meaningful Relationships”.
On April 23 at 7:15pm, N’shei
Chabad Women will convene
for a talk led by Sara Steinmetz
entitled: “Reservations for Two
– Defining Marriage’s Boundaries”. We may all agree that
marriage requires boundaries to
protect its exclusivity, but the
question of where those lines
should be drawn can spark heated debate. Judaism shows us not
only how to thwart temptations
that threaten our marriage from
the outside, but how to enhance
it from within by expanding the
exclusivity of our relationship.
Following the Rosh Chodesh
Society class women will enjoy learning about Chi Kung
Massage with Rosann Argenti.

Your Passover Guide
Nisan 13 - 22, April 2 - 11, 2015
c An Introduction
On Pesach (Passover) we celebrate the liberation of the Jewish people – not
just our physical liberation from Egyptian slavery, but also our spiritual
freedom from the “abominations of Egypt”. The civilization of ancient
Egypt was steeped in idolatry and immorality. Beyond that, however the
name “Egypt” – ‘Mitzrayim’, in Hebrew – implies ‘limitations’, or narrow
straits. In a very real sense, freedom from the ‘abomination of Egypt’
is freedom from narrowness of mind, freedom from a constricted heart.
The Torah laws concerning Pesach, besides being G-dly commandments,
are to help us experience this spirit of freedom.
This guide, though concise, covers the practical
details, and the basic Pesach laws. It is filled
with useful tips and profound insights to enhance your Passover experience. Use it well and
in the best of health!
c How To Prepare the House
What is Chometz?
Unique to Pesach is the eating of matzah*, and
the stringent prohibition of eating or possessing
Chometz is a general term for all food and drink made from wheat,
barley, rye, oats, spelt or their derivatives, which is forbidden on Pesach
because it is leavened. Even food that contains only a trace of Chometz
is prohibited and must be removed from our homes.
*Note: Matzah used all year round is not for Pesach use. Only Matzahs
baked especially for Pesach may be used on Pesach.
Getting Rid of Chometz
Obvious Chometz – both food and utensils used throughout the year
(and not koshered for Pesach) – should be stored in closets or rooms
which are not easily accessible (locked or taped shut). This Chometz
should be sold to a non-Jew.
Clean the entire house thoroughly to remove all crumbs and small
pieces of food.
Also check for Chometz in the car and office (desks and drawers, etc.)
clothes, pockets (especially the children’s), pocketbooks, and attache’
cases. Vacuum cleaner bags should be discarded or cleaned.
c How To Prepare the Kitchen
To prepare the kitchen for Pesach, we must kosher it from Chometz that
has been cooked in it.
Chabad Newsletter • 8
Dishes and Utensils: Have special sets of dishes, silverware, pots, pans
and other utensils for Pesach use only. (If necessary certain ‘year-round’
utensils may be used provided they are koshered for Pesach. To do so,
consult the Rabbi.)
Stove: Thoroughly clean and scour every part of it. Heat the oven to
the highest temperature possible for 1-2 hours. Heat the grates and the
iron parts of the stove until they glow red-hot. It is suggested that the
oven and stove top should be covered afterwards with aluminum foil.
Microwave Ovens: Clean the oven thoroughly. Fill with water a completely clean container that was not used for 24 hours. Turn on the
microwave and let it steam heavily. Turn it off
and wipe out the inside. To use the microwave
during Pesach, use a flat piece of Styrofoam or
any other thick object as a separation between
the bottom of the oven and the cooking dish.
When cooking, the food should be covered
from all sides.
Sink: Meticulously clean the sink. For 24
hours before koshering it, do not pour hot
water from Chometz pots into the sink.
Afterwards, boil water in a clean pot which
was not used for 24 hours, and pour water 3
times onto every part of the sink, including
the drain stopper. Afterwards, line the sink.
Refrigerator, Freezer, Cupboards, Closets, Tables and Counters:
Thoroughly clean and scrub them to remove any crumbs or residue.
Afterwards, cover with a heavy covering those surfaces that come into
contact with hot food or utensils.
Tablecloths and Napkins: Launder without starch.
c Shopping for Pesach
While shopping for Pesach we must be careful that the foods we buy are
not only kosher but are also kosher-for-Pesach – that is, chometz-free.
Starting ‘from Scratch’
All fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as all kosher cuts of meat and
kosher fish are kosher for Pesach – provided they have been prepared
in accordance with Jewish law and have not come into contact with
chometz or chometz utensil.
The prevailing custom is that we do not eat on Pesach rice, millet, corn,
mustard, legumes (beans, etc.), or foods made from any of them.
Commercially Prepared Products
Nowadays, there are many kosher-for-Pesach packaged foods available.
However, care must be used to purchase only those packaged food that
c Shmurah Matzah
have reliable Rabbinical supervision which is valid for Pesach.
Obviously, all leavened foods made from wheat, barley, rye, oats or spelt
are actual chometz and are prohibited on Pesach. Examples are bread,
cake, cereal, spaghetti, beer and whiskey.
Check the Medicine Cabinet!
Many medicines, sprays and cosmetics contain chometz. Consult the
Rabbi as to which ones may be used on Pesach. The same applies to
pet food.
c How to Search for Chometz and Burn It
The search for Chometz takes place on Thursday evening, April 2 after
dark. We traditionally use a candle, wooden
spoon and feather for the search (the Chabad gift
shop sells a “Chometz Search Kit” that includes
the above mentioned items.) It is customary to
distribute ten small individually wrapped pieces of
Chometz throughout the home before the search.
‘Shmurah’ means watched and is an apt description of this special matzah
(unleavened bread). The wheat used is carefully watched – protected
against any contact with water from the moment of harvest - as water
would cause leavening, and thus disqualify the wheat for use on Pesach
These matzahs are round in form, kneaded and shaped by hand, similar
to the matzahs baked by the Children of Israel on their way out of
Egypt. They are baked under strict supervision to avoid any possibility
of leavening during the baking process. Shmurah matzah should be used
on each of the two Seder nights for the three matzahs of the Seder plate.
c The Eight Days of Pesach
On Friday, April 3, chometz may be eaten only
in the early hours of the morning, this year until
11:24 am. After that time, only foods which are
kosher for Pesach may be eaten. However, we do
not eat matzah until the Seder.
Fast of the First-Born
When the Al-mighty slew the first-born of Egypt,
He spared the first-born of the Children of Israel.
Therefore, all first-born sons of Israel, or fathers
of first-born sons under 13, fast on the day before
Pesach, in gratitude to the Al-mighty.
The Blessing
Recite the following blessing before the search:
Bo-ruch Ah-toh Ah-do-noi Eh-lo-hei-nu Me-lech
Hah-olom A-sher Kih-dih-shah-nu Bih-mitz-votav Vih-tiz-vah-nu Al Be-or Cha-metz.
It has, however, been a custom for many centuries that this fast day is broken by a festive meal
in celebration of a completion of a Tractate of
the Mishna or Talmud. This takes place at the
synagogue Friday, April 3, following morning
services. Services begin at 8:00 am.
Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the
universe, who has sanctified us by His commandments, and has commanded us to remove
the leaven.
The Search
Afterwards, hold the lit candle and search for Chometz in every room,
as well as any other areas of the home that may have chometz, such as
the attic, garage, or car.
When the search is completed, recite the following:
All leaven or anything leavened which is in my possession, which I have
neither seen nor removed and about which I am unaware, shall be considered naught and ownerless as the dust of the earth.
Then take all the chometz that was found in the search, cover it securely
and place it in a conspicuous spot. This chometz will be burned in the
morning. Food intended to be sold or eaten later should similarly
be carefully put aside. The search should also be conducted in
one’s place of business.
Seder Preparation
On Friday, April 3, prepare the chicken neck, horseradish and charoset
for both Seder nights.
For the second Seder, set the table and prepare the meal after 8:24 pm.
The Concluding Days of Pesach
Pesach is eight days long. The last two days of Pesach are also Yom Tov.
Pesach does not end until Shabbat, April 11, in the evening at 8:28 pm.
Until that time no chometz should be bought or eaten.
Schedule of Services & Torah Classes
Burning the Chometz
On the morning before Pesach, Friday, April 3, burn the chometz
that was found during the search, or that was left over from breakfast
and not stored with the chometz which will be sold to the non-Jew.
Deadline for burning the Chometz: 12:22 pm. Burning of the
chometz will take place at the synagogue at 11:30 am.
After the chometz is thrown into the fire, recite the following: All
leaven or anything leavened which is in my possession, whether I
have seen it or not, whether I have observed it or not, whether I
have removed it or not shall be completely considered naught and
ownerless as the dust of the earth.

Since it is prohibited to possess chometz on Pesach, we need to sell to a nonJew all chometz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach, including all
chometz utensils. These are stored away in closets or rooms while preparing
for Pesach. Now we lock or tape shut the closets or rooms, and they are leased
to the non-Jew at the time of the sale.
Since there are many legal intricacies in this sale, only a competent Rabbi should
be entrusted with its execution. The Rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the
chometz to the non-Jew on the morning before Pesach starts, and also to buy it
back after Pesach ends.
This form is available online at:
I (We) _______________________________
Hereby authorize Rabbi Chaim S. Steinmetz to sell all
chometz that may be in my (our) possession; wherever it may
be - at home, at work, or elsewhere - in accordance with the
requirements of Jewish law, as incorporated in the special
contract for the sale of chometz.

Pesach Schedule of Services
Weekday Minyan, photo by: Barry Gorn
With our snowbird members
preparing to leave for the
season, our morning minyan needs help. If anyone
can come, it will be helpful,
appreciated, and perhaps
necessary for that morning’s
minyan. Please let Maish
Fraidowitz ([email protected] know if you plan
to come, or decide to come
that morning. Otherwise, we
are forced to call (and awaken) some of our reserves who
may, or may not, be able to
help us. Thanks to all of you
who have continued to support our morning minyans.
