Passover Guide 5779

passover guide 2019Of all the festivals, Pesah requires the most preparation. It takes me weeks to clean my kitchen and be ready to cook for the seders. Here are guidelines prepared by the Rabbinical Assembly.

One section is devoted to foods and the second section describes how to kasher your kitchen. I realize this includes many more rules than you may follow in your home. I am distributing the Pesah guide for two reasons. First, I want you to understand what it means to kasher a kitchen for Passover. Second, I imagine many of you do clean your homes and prepare for the holiday. Perhaps this year you will clean differently. Or you will decide to kasher something that in years past you did not. Please do not feel that preparing your kitchen for Pesah is all or nothing. You may not own separate dishes, or extra pots and pans. But you can still clean your kitchen and prepare your home for the holiday. In a strange way I find that cleaning for Passover is really an enjoyable and spiritual experience. I do admit it is also very tiring.

Please know, no question is foolish and I hope you will call me, as you prepare for the holiday. Wishing you and your family a zissen (sweet) Pesah.

Rabbi Amy Wallk Katz
