Greetings from Rabbi Hershenson
The rabbis are serious about removing chametz from our homes. First we carefully clean every place in our house where food is eaten or prepared. The cleaning is followed up by b'dikat chametz, the search for chametz before Passover begins. This ceremonial investigation is performed by candlelight with a feather. It can be a lot of fun with young children.
Members & Friends -
It appears that Spring has sprung, although there is still plenty of snow on Mt Bachelor for those that still want to extend their winter activities. Of course, this being Central Oregon, we still might get a major snowstorm in April, or a heat wave, or both.
In March we had a full set of wonderful events. For Shabbat@Home, Leslie Conley & Joe Jezukewicz, Terry & Gary Reynolds, and Marilyn & Chuck Shattuck graciously opened their homes for a warm and welcoming Shabbat evening. Besides the usual great dinner, the theme of Jewish jokes and humor made for a most enjoyable and fun time. Be sure to look for the next invitation to Shabbat@Home which will be held on April 8th, and make it a point to attend.
