THE SEARCH FOR CHAMETZ

It is prohibited by Torah law to own chametz (leaven) on Pesach.

Therefore we search and destroy chametz before Pesach. In most homes the process of cleaning begins weeks before Pesach. The house is scoured from top to bottom to remove all traces of chametz.

CBS COMMUNITY CENTER | SELL YOUR CHAMETZ

Before Pesach it is a requirement to eliminate all chametz (bread products or derivatives of bread products) from our possession. Jewish law does allow for chametz, especially and preferably, only in non-bread-like form (e.g. liquors, mixtures, etc.) to be sold to a gentile in those circumstances when elimination is not an option. Arrangements for such sale may be made through the Rabbi using the below form:

The Rabbi will be available to conduct the "Selling Chametz" transaction on the following times:

 

Starting Tuesday March 20th through Wednesday March 28th

After Maariv (evening services) 7:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Pesach (Passover) is April 19 - April 27, 2019

 

 

BURNING THE CHAMETZ

NULLIFICATION AND BURNING

The following morning, it is forbidden to eat chametz after the fourth hour. One may continue to derive other benefit from the chametz until the end of the fifth hour. Before this time, the chametz must be burned and again nullified. Since the times vary from city to city, an Orthodox rabbi should be consulted for the exact times in your area.

 

For the CBS Community in the Philadelphia area:

Friday March 30, 2018

The last time to eat chametz is 10:58 am.

 The last time to burn chametz is  at 12:01 pm.

After you burn your chametz, to nullify all your chametz, the following is recited:

"All chametz, leaven and leavened bread, that is in my possession, whether I have seen it or not, whether I have removed it or not, should be annulled and considered ownerless like the dust of the earth."

 

 

THE SEDER

ABC'S OF THE SEDER

Passover is brimming with symbols of slavery and freedom.  Passover is an 8-day holiday (in Israel, seven days). The name derives from the fact that during the final plague – the slaying of the first born – God “passed over" the Jewish homes.  We eat symbols of slavery and freedom, and the festive meal includes many delicious recipes for foods that people look forward to all year.

Think matzah balls!
