Passover – Schedule of Services

Leave a comment

Passover begins on 15 Nisan, this year on Friday evening.  Here is the schedule of services for the next week.

Friday, April 3             Erev Pesach & Leil Pesach

7:30 a.m.        Shacharit

Followed by the siyyum ha’bchor.  First-born Jews are obligated to fast from sunup until the Seder meal on the day before Pesach.  By studying with us at the siyyum, you will be able to join us for the festive meal that follows.  The mitzvah of participating in the festive meal following a period of study is greater than the obligation to fast, so the first-born will be relieved of that obligation.

Following breakfast, bring your chametz to our bonfire, located on the playground deck.

You must sell your chametz by 10:00 a.m.  I will be available after minyan.

You may eat chametz until 11:00 a.m.

6:00 p.m.        Mincha / Ma’ariv

Saturday, April 4                1st day of Passover

Please note that morning services will last approximately 1 hour because of the additional prayers added for Hol HaMoed.

Please note that our minhag (custom) is not to put on tefillin during Hol HaMoed.  Of course, you are welcome to do so if that is your own custom

Arrange to sell your chametz during Passover

Leave a comment

Arranging for the Sale of Chametz

The Torah prohibits a Jew’s ownership of chametz during Pesach. Chametz means “leavened food” and refers to food prepared from five species of grain: wheat, barley, oats, spelt, and rye. These grains may cause fermentation of dough and allow it to rise, which is forbidden. Ashkenazi rabbis added rice, millet, corn, and legumes to this list. If any of these becomes mixed with other food, this food also becomes chametz. The prohibition against owning chametz includes eating it, enjoying any benefit from it, and possessing it. Therefore, we arrange to sell the chametz to a non-Jew, and to rent out the locations where it is stored if the chametz cannot be removed from our property.

In modern times, the transfer, mekhira chametz, is accomplished by appointing an agent to handle the sale. The agent completes a valid and legal transfer of ownership by entering into a written contract with a non-Jew. At the end of the holiday, the agent arranges to reverse ownership of the now permitted chametz.

It is customary to give an honorarium to the agent for performing the service, or to make a donation to the agent’s synagogue, or both.

According to the contract I will negotiate on your behalf, your ownership of chametz will end on 14 Nisan (April 3) at 10:00 a.m., and will be restored on 23 Nisan (April 11) at 9:15 p.m.  I will be available in the morning after breakfast (or after minyan if you cannot stay) and in the evening after minyan, except on Shabbat.  The final day to make arrangements will be after the siyyum meal  in the morning on April 3.

For more information, follow this link to another page on the blogsite.

On behalf of Adat Shalom Synagogue, I will be happy to act as your agent this year to arrange for the sale of your chametz.
