Rabbi Riddle Says...
National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education

It's Clean-Up Time!
  Happy Shushan Purim!A Lot to Talk About!  
Passover celebrates our Exodus from Egypt and the "birth" of the Jewish people. On Passover, it's forbidden to own any leavened products ("chametz"), such as bread, cake, cookies, grain alcohol, or cereal made from flour. So over the next several weeks, we clean our homes of chametz to prepare for Passover.

  • We clean out our rooms, our desks, even our pockets of any leavened products.

  • We only have to clean places where we know we put chametz.

  • To avoid owning chametz on Passover, we generally do three things: destroy (burn), nullify, and sell it. (We store whatever we wish to sell in one place, and then the Rabbi transfers ownership to a non-Jew for the holiday.)

Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
  1. Where do they send someone who keeps leaven on Passover?
  1. Leavenworth Prison!

  Happy Shushan Purim!A Lot to Talk About!
