Pesach
at Lubavitch of Arkansas
Pesach: April 8 – April 16, 2020
Message from the Rabbi
As we approach the holiday of Pesach, we think of all the laws, customs and traditions associated with the holiday, and what this holiday represents to us personally and as a People. This year, however, you might be challenged to lead your very own Seder, and that might overwhelm you. We want to help you.

If you, or someone you know, needs any items or foods for the Pesach Seder, please let us know and we will find  a way to enable you to have your very own Seder, this year. Whether you need a full Seder meal, a Haggadah, a Seder plate or one of the items that go on the Seder plate, send a note to passover@arjewishcenter.com and someone will contact you.

You can find more information about the holiday below.

We wish you and your family a healthy, kosher and happy Pesach

Sell your chametz
Use this online form to sell your chametz for Passover.

Any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends. Use this online form to quickly delegate a rabbi to sell your chametz for you.

Order Matzah
Traditional handmade shmurah matzah is recommended for seder use.

Shmurah means watched, and it is an apt description of this matzah, the ingredients of which (the flour and water) are watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing.

Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to use Shmurah Matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate.

Order your matzah today!
 
Meal of Moshiach
Thursday, April 16

Just when you thought you had seen it all! This day, the final day of Passover, emphasizes an even higher Freedom! It is dedicated to our imminent and final redemption.

Following the custom of the Baal Shem Tov, founder of Chassidism, Passover concludes with a "Feast of Moshiach." This festive meal complete with Matzah and, yes, four cups of wine, begins before sunset. It is the perfect way to spiritually take leave of Passover and open our consciousness to the coming redemption.
