Bake your own matzah for Passover! April 3
Matzah is called both the “bread of affliction” and the “bread of freedom.” How can this simple food, made from just two ingredients, help liberate us? This Passover season, learn more about matzah and BAKE YOUR OWN in the Beth El kitchen. Baking matzah ourselves helps connect us to Jewish tradition, and investigate what matzah has to teach us about freedom.
Sign up here to bake matzah with your family in the Beth El Kitchen on Monday, April 3.

Passover is a time when nobody should be without a place at the Seder table. As the Haggadah says, “Let all who are hungry come and eat.” If you have extra places at your Seder, please open your home to one or more members of the Beth El family or Triangle community. If you need a place for a Seder, please don’t be shy! Give us the privilege of sharing a Seder with you. We will be delighted to arrange for hosts and guests to enjoy the Seders together. Simply complete this form by Monday, March 27.

Kitniyot – Enjoy!
A few years ago, following a tshuva passed by the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards of the Conservative movement, Rabbi Greyber permitted the consumption of kitniyot on Passover for Beth El congregants. The kitchen at Beth El will continue to be kitniyot-free so our communal space accommodates as many in the Jewish community as possible.
