Sell Your Chametz
Click here to sell your chametz – the form is due by Monday, April 11.
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 Friday, April 8.

How to Kasher for Pesach
Click here for the packet by the Rabbinical Assembly with a full description on how to kasher for Pesach 2022. Included in the packet is information about two responsa passed by the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards permitting the consumption of kitniyot on Passover, both of which have Rabbi Greyber’s support for members of the Beth El community to use in our homes. Beth El’s kitchen, however, will continue to refrain from serving kitniyot.
