5780/2020 Passover Information

PESACH is celebrated from sundown Wednesday evening, April 8, 2020, through sundown Thursday, April 16, 2020.

THE SEDARIM are held on Wednesday evening, April 8, 2020, and Thursday evening, April 9, 2020.

SELLING OF CHAMETZ - Jews are required to rid their home of Chametz on Passover. To avoid a “significant financial loss” (hef’sak m’ruba) a legal fiction was introduced allowing one to place their “hametzdik” non-perishable food items in a closed-off area for Passover. The Rabbi is then empowered to sell these items, and those of the rest of the community, to a non-Jew. At the end of Passover, the Rabbi purchases them back from the non-Jew. Though the “hametzdik” food never leaves one’s home, it is also not formally in their possession during Passover.
