More On Passover Traditions

Passover is a very different holiday than most in the Jewish calendar. The first reason is that we are required to remove all leavened products from our home, or to sell it to a non-Jew. This is done by a Rabbi who acts as our "agent" and knows how to do the "selling and the rebuying" of the Chometz (Leavened products) after Passover. Within every community, there is one Rabbi who is in charge of this. For those of you who don't have a Rabbi, Chabad provides this service at no charge.

Leaven comes from flour of any of the Five Species (Wheat, Oat, Rye, Spelt, and Barley) that comes into contact with water for more than 18 minutes. This is why Matza baking must be done from the second that the flour comes into contact with the water and the mixing and kneading and rolling of the dough and baking the Matza in less than 18 minutes total. At the same time, the equipment must be changed every so often to make sure that nothing has had a chance to become leaven.

Interpreter’s Corner

inter2"Controversy in DC"
Since I have moved to Maryland, I have collected a "list" of over 35 Judaic Interpreters in the MD/DC area. These interpreters have given their permission to have their names released to organizations in need of an interpreter.

Somehow, the word has gotten out, and many synagogues and Jewish Agencies now contact me when they are looking for an interpreter. I forward the list of email addresses and they usually send a "mass email" to the whole list.
