Did you remember to sell your chametz?

One of the most important customs of Pesach. 

Fill out this form today.

Search for the chametz Thursday after dark (after 6:49 PM).

Recite the blessing prior to the search, and the nullification of the chametz (Kol Chamira) following the search.

Fast of the Firstborn .

This commemorates G‑d's 'passing over' the Israelite Firstborn sons during the last plague. To be exempt from fasting, one must participate in a meal marking the fulfillment of a mitzvah; such a meal is generally held in a synagogue after morning prayers on this day.

7:15 AM Shacharit followed by a
Siyum Masechet.

Nightfall marks the beginning of Passover’s intermediate days called Chol Hamoed.

Between the first two and the last two days of Passover, we may resume much (not all) of our regular, workday activities.

Of course, we continue to eat Kosher for Passover foods exclusively.

It is customary to drink a glass of wine or grape juice each day, in celebration of the festival.
