KEHILATH JESHURUN BULLETIN 3
PREPARING FOR PASSOVER5734 1974
In this special Passover supplement, we present facts and
suggestions concerning Passover preparations for this year.In
addition to the necessary background information and the rules and
regulations concerning Passover, we have includedspecial
instructions with regard to the unique experience this year of
Passover eve when it occurs on the Sabbath. This coin¬cidence
presents several complications and many unique experiences. If you
will follow the instructions in this supplement,you will find that
the procedures are relatively simple. At the same time, this unique
experience will make us even moreself-conscious about preparing for
what is perhaps the most interesting holiday on the Jewish
In preparing this supplement, we have of course made use of the
traditional sources of Jewish law. In addition, wehave drawn some
of the ideas and suggestions from a compendium on Passover prepared
by Rabbi Jacob Hoenig, a younggraduate of Yeshiva University. We
are indebted to him for his excellent research.I. What and Why is
Chametz?When the Israelites emerged from
Egyptian slavery they left in greathaste. Consequently, they
could notbake their bread in the usual manner.There was not
sufficient time for thedough to rise and for the bread tobecome
leavened. The product of sucha leavening process is called
chametz.It consists of grain (or flour) mixed withwater and allowed
to stand for morethan a brief period without beingbaked
In order to relive the experience ofour ancestors we avoid
chametzthroughout the entire Passover festival.We neither eat it
nor own it duringthe holiday. We try to use up whateverproducts we
have before the festival.What we cannot use we store away inone
place and sell it to a non-Jewthrough the Rabbi of the synagogue(a
form for this purpose is found onpage 8 of this Bulletin).
Before the festival we conduct a
symbolic search of the house (B'dikatChametz) to ensure that all
chametzhas been removed from our premises.On the morrow following
the searchwe symbolically burn what we havefound (Bi'ur
During the eight days of the festivalwe use only products that
are free ofchametz and we eat matzoh (unleaven¬ed bread) in order
to experience thehaste of our forefathers when theywent forth from
slavery to freedom.
II. Preparing the Home for PassoverIn addition to not using
products during the festival, we alsoavoid the use of dishes and
utensilswhich have been used with chametzall year round. For that
reason it isnecessary to have two additional setsof dishes for
Passover use. These arestored away in a closet throughout theyear
and brought out for use only onPassover. At the same time, the
yearround dishes and utensils are storedaway, out of sight, during
There are certain types of utensilsthat can be ritually cleaned
— orkashered — for Passover use. Theseare discussed below.
1. Silver and metal utensilsSilverware, small pots and metal
utensils with no wooden handlesmay be kashered for Passover
use.They must first be cleansed thor¬oughly and then allowed to
standunused for at least twenty-four
hours. They are then completelyimmersed in a kettle or vat of
Larger pots and kettles may bekashered by first cleansing them
asabove and then filling them withwater to the very top, allowing
thewater to boil and then placing ahot iron or stone inside the pot
sothat the boiling water runs overdown the sides of the pot.
We might add that china, pottery,utensils that have different
glued together and items that can¬not be cleansed thoroughly
(suchas a sieve) cannot be kashered forPassover use.
Glasses or glass plates whichhave not been used for hot
liquidsor solids during the year may bekashered for Passover by
immersingthem in cold water for a period ofthree days prior to
Passover. Thewater need not be changed duringthat three day
May we stress that glass utensils(such as Pyrex) which are used
withheat must be treated as china andcannot be kashered The best

3. The Stove and Oven
Every part of the oven and stovemust be thoroughly cleaned with
achemical cleanser and then allowed
to stand for twenty-four hours ormore without being used. The
toprange and the oven must then beheated at the highest setting
andallowed to stand for a period ofabout two hours at that
In addition, during Passover, aspecial metal sheet is placed
overthe top of the range to prevent con¬tact with the Passover
Tuesday Evening, April 2 at 7:30In order to help all those who
like to kasher utensils for Passover,
the congregation will sponsor aKasher-ln on Tuesday evening,
April2, at 7:30, in the Caterer's Kitchen.Members of the community
are in¬vited to bring their utensils to thesynagogue where we will
help themkasher properly.
Both of our Rabbis will be more
than happy to answer any furtherquestions which you may have
aboutmaking your home kosher for Pass¬over. Please feel free to
call upon themfor any kind of inquiry.
III. Passover Foods
Most foods that are used on Pass¬
over require rabbinic supervision. Thisis especially true of all
processedfoods. It is important to realize thata label indicating
that the product is"Kosher for Passover" does not assure
us of the adequacy of the supervision.Wherever possible,
congregants shoulduse OU products which have a specialPassover
supervision. If not, it is im¬portant to check on the reliability

the particular Rabbi who is giving theendorsement. Please feel
free to ask
our Rabbis in the event of any doubton this matter.
1. Grain productsAll grain products require strict
rabbinic supervision for Passover use.
2. Milk and dairy productsThese, too, require supervision.
however, may be .purchased beforePassover without supervision.
If onehas to purchase it during the festival,however, it requires
supervision.Powdered milk, such as Alba, may beused on Passover
without a rabbinic
3. Fresh fruits and vegetablesAll of these may be used
for legumes — peas, beans, rice andcorn which are all treated
cahmetz). If these fruits and vege¬tables are sold in a general
grocerystore, they should be washed verycarefully before feeing
used on Pass¬over.
4. Dried fruits
These should carry a Passover en¬dorsement.
5. Frozen fruits and vegetables.With the exception of the
that were mentioned above, frozenfruits and vegetables if they
are notmixed with anything else, should beusable for Passover
without a rabbinic
endorsement. Pure orange juice maybe purchased before Passover
withouta rabbinic endorsement.
All cosmetics can be used for Pass¬
over inasmuch as they are not foods.This includes
7. Baby Foods.If you have a baby who must be
fed formula or baby food which con¬
tains chametz, the baby's utensils andfoods should be kept
absolutelyseparate from everything else in thehouse. It should also
that when you are selling the chametzyou are selling this food
also and thayou will make up to the buyer whatever has been used
during the course,of the festival.
Coffee may be purchased before:Passover and need not carry a
9. All other foods.
Those processed foods not mentioned in this listing require
special supervision for Passover use.
10. Chametz after Passover.
According to Jewish law, chametzwhich was owned by a Jew during
theholiday may never again be used b^any other Jew. Therefore,
after theholiday is over, one should make sureto buy Chametz
products from a Jewwho has sold his chametz and not from
a Jewish establishment which mighthave had the particular
chametz pro¬duct on the shelf during Passover. Inorder to avoid
confusion, it is best topurchase such products from non-Jew¬ish
storekeepers until such time as thePassover stock has been
completelyused up and replenished with newfoods.
OU DirectoryThere is a special Directory pub¬
lished by the Union of Orthodox Jew¬ish Congregations of America
whichcontains a complete listing of theirKosher for Passover
products. Wehave mailed that directory to all mem¬bers of the
congregation. Non-mem¬bers who would like to obtain a copy
may come to the Synagogue Officeand we will be happy to provide
KEHILATH JESHURUN BULLETIN 5
SPECIAL OBSERVANCES FOR THE UNIQUE OCCURRENCE OF PASSOVER EVEON
Introductory Note.The occurrence of the 14th day of
Nisan, Passover eve, on a Sabbath,has significance in Jewish
history. Therise of Hi I lei to the leadership of thegreat
Sanhedrin was a result of hisdecision on the mode of conduct to
befollowed by the ancient Judeans ona Sabbath Passover eve in the
year 30B.C.E. (100 years before the destruc¬tion of the second
Temple). His leader¬ship brought about his special mentionin the
Haggadah in connection withthe Seder sandwich (Korech).
The general principle to be kept inmind on a Passover eve that
falls onthe Sabbath is to maintain the dignityof the Sabbath while
at the same timepreparing adequately for the Passoverfestival. This
requires some rearrang¬ing of the traditional observance on
The most recent occurrence of Pass¬over eve on a Sabbath was on
April1, 1954 (5710). The present occasionwill be April 6. The next
times in thiscentury will be April 2, 1977, April18, 1981 and March
26, 1994.I. The fast of the first born.
On Passover eve, the first born inevery family (according to
someauthorities, female first born also) arerequired to fast in
order to thank Godfor the fact that the Jewish first bornwere
spared in the tenth plague inEgypt. In order to make it easier
forthe first born on a normal Passovereve, most congregations
conduct aspecial service in the morning at whicha Tractate of the
Talmud is completedand all present are invited to partici¬pate in a
Seudat Mitzvah (a mitzvahmeal). This immediately absolves thefirst
born from the obligation to fast.Because of the fact that Passover
eveis on a Sabbath and a fast cannot bearranged for a Sabbath, the
traditionalservice for the first born will be heldthis year on
Thursday morning at 7:30in the Chapel of the synagogue.II. The
Search for Chametz.
The search for chametz this year isperformed on Thursday evening
in theusual manner in which it is conducted
every year. The head of the householdtakes a candle, a feather
and a woodenspoon and makes a search of thehome, picking up the
pieces of cham¬etz which have been laid out for himby other members
of the househoid.The reason for laying out the piecesof chametz is
to make sure that thesearch is not in vain and the blessingthat is
recited before the search shallnot have been uttered needlessly.
Atthe conclusion of the search, theformula of nullification
contained inthe Haggadah (Kol Chamira) shouldbe recited.
III. Burning of Chametz.The burning of chametz is per¬
formed on Friday morning before11:30 (one hour later than usual
be¬cause we are on Daylight SavingsTime). Those who would like to
burnthe chametz but who do not havefacilities for it, may bring
their chametzto the synagogue where we will havesuch facilities
available. The normalrecitation of the second formula
fornullification (Kol Chamira) is not madeat this ceremony. That
statement willbe made on Saturday morning afterthe conclusion of
the early Sabbathmeal.
IV. Sale of Chametz.All chametz must be sold by 11:30
on Friday morning. It is requested thatthose who will make their
sale throughour synagogue should be certain thatthe form is sent to
the Rabbis byThursday, April 4, so that we will becertain to have
all the forms in time.Those who would like to arrange forthe sale
of their chametz personally,may do so by coming to the synagogueany
time during the next few days anduntil Friday morning, April 5,
V. Cleaning of the Home and Kitchen.By Friday afternoon, the
should be thoroughly cleaned forPassover. All kashering should
be corn-pelted. All chametz utensils should bestored away. The
house should be soarranged as if Passover were begin¬ning on Friday
evening instead of Sat¬urday evening.
VI. Preparation for the Seder.Since we cannot cook or
anything on the Sabbath for the Pass¬over holiday or the Seder,
those foodsthat are specifically required for theSeder should be
prepared on Fridayafternoon once the home is completelyready for
Passover. The foods thatshould be so prepared are the roastedegg,
the roasted shank bone (Z'ro'a)the charoset and the salt water.
Themaror can be left for Saturday night.We would suggest that
Romaine let¬tuce be used as maror this year.
VII. Conduct for the Friday Night MealThe entire meal should be
Passover dishes and made in Passoverutensils. Matzoh, however,
may notbe eaten on Friday or on Saturday.
It is, of course, necessary to makea motzi over something at
each Sab¬bath meal. The following procedure,therefore, should be
followed.Two little rolls should be put aside
in a plastic bag on a small table orshelf. The family should
wash, makea motzi and eat the two rolls, dispos¬ing of whatever
crumbs are left in thewastebasket. Then they sit down atthe table
and eat their meal (preparedaccording to Passover
regulations).VIII. Sfi3bbat Morning, April 6.
Our Synagogue Service on Satur¬day morning, April 6, will begin
at7:30 and end at approximately 9:30.This will enable everyone to
returnhome and to have the second Sabbathmeal as a brunch,
completing the eat¬ing of the meal by 10:30 in the morn¬ing, after
which it is not permitted toeat any chametz.
The Sabbath Meal.
The Sabbath morning meal, whichwill be a brunch, should be
conductedin exactly the same way as the Fridaynight meal was
conducted. Kiddush isrecited and then a motzi is made overtwo
little rolls, carefully stored awayand in a plastic bag and eaten
in aseparate place. The crumbs should bedisposed of in the
wastebasket andthe Passover meal should then be com¬
pleted at the table. Preferably the meal(Continued on Page
6 KEHILATH JESHURUN BULLETIN
Special Observances (Cont'd)should be concluded by about
10:30.After that time no chametz may beeaten. Following the Birkat
Hamazon,the second formula of nullification (KolChamira) which is
found in your Hag-gadah, should be pronounced.IX. The Third Sabbath
The Seudah Shlishit is eaten aftermidday. It should be observed
withoutthe eating of any matzoh and, ofcourse, without any chametz.
It is rec¬ommended that the meal consist offruit, vegetables, meat
or fish. Themeal should be completed by 4o'clock.
May we repeat for emphasis: Mat¬zoh is not eaten on Passover eve
atany time. The reason for this is so thatwhen we come to the Seder
table wewill anticipate the eating of matzohwith joy and enthusiasm
as a new andspecial food.X. The Preparations for the Seder.
It must be stressed that the Shabbatis the holiest day on the
Jewish calen¬dar. It should not ,be profaned evenby using it to
prepare for as importanta day as Passover. Therefore, no
prep¬arations for the Seder — getting thefoods ready, setting the
table, etc. —should be carried on during the Sab¬bath day.
Preparations may not beginuntil the Shabbat ends. Unfortunately,due
to daylight savings time, the con¬clusion of the Sabbath is at a
relative¬ly late hour: 8:03.
The same rule, by the way, holdstrue for the second night of
Passover.It is not permissable to prepare thetable or anything else
on the first dayof Passover for the second. One hasto wait until
8:04 in order to beginthe preparations and make the ar¬rangements
for the second Seder. Weregret the inconvenience, but if weare to
have the sanctity of the Sab¬bath and the first day of
Passover,then we must adhere to these regula¬tions.
* * *
"Therefore it is our happy duty topraise ... to thank, to
glorify and toextol Him who wrought all these won¬ders for our
fathers and for us. Hebrought us forth from bondage to free¬dom,
from slavery to redemption,from sorrow to joy, from mourning
tofestivity, and from darkness to greatlight. . .May the Lord our
God and God of
our fathers, lead us to the observanceof further festivals and
holidays, rejoic¬ing in the upbuilding of Zion, His city,and happy
in His service . . .Next year in Jerusalem rebuilt!"
At the Seder table one should have four matzot, the
threetraditional ones and an additional Matzah, which will not be
eatenand which symbolizes the plight of our brethren in the Soviet
Union,many of whom are unable to obtain Matzah for Passover.
Just prior to the reciting of the four questions, the reader
ofthe Seder should lift this extra Matzah and read the
THIS IS THE MATZAH OF HOPE
This matzah, which we set aside as a symbol of hope for theJews
of the Soviet Union, reminds us of the indestructible links
thatexist between us.
As we observe this festival of freedom, we recall that
SovietJews are not free to leave without harassment; to learn of
theirpast; to pass on their religious traditions; to learn the
langauge oftheir fathers; to train teachers and rabbis of future
We remember the scores who sought to live as Jews andstruggle to
leave for Israel — the land of our fathers — but nowlanguish in
Soviet labor camps. Their struggle against theiroppressors goes on.
They will not be forgotten.
We will stand with them in their struggle until the light
offreedom and redemption shines forth.

who owns Chametz is required

agent may be authorized tosell one's Chametz. The agent may be
appointed in person by speaking toeither of the rabbis or to Mr.
Rosenberg. The form which is found in this Bulletincan also be used
for this purpose. Please fill it out and return it to the
