Message from President Susan Baum

Well, Purim is now in the past so it’s time to move on to the next holiday which is Pesach. As soon as the last batch of hamantashen was out of the oven, there was talk about cleaning the kitchen for Pesach. It is a major undertaking in the temple kitchen.

Last month I mentioned about spring cleaning coming but for us it is for Passover. It is early this month so by the time you read this some of us will be in full cleaning mode. I noticed that the stores are having big sales on cleaning products and there have been many manufacturer coupons available for them. I guess they’re trying to tell us something about needing to clean. When it comes to cleaning I tend to put it off but I can’t when it comes to Passover. Passover cleaning concentrates on the kitchen but it’s a good time to go through your closet. I’m sure we all have some clothes we can part with and donate to a worthy cause.

While most Jews still gather together at Passover for some kind of celebration of the exodus from Egypt, there are many who don’t have anywhere to go. That’s why we have a seder on the first night of Pesach at Temple Beth Emet that is open to anyone. Rabbi Berman and Cantor Zev do a marvelous job leading the seder. For more information see the flyer enclosed.


For the last year and a half, we have been having a free dinner on Friday nights to ensure that there are enough people for a minyon. The attendance has dropped and we haven’t had one sometimes. Please try to come so we can keep this program going. Remember all you need to do is call the office to RSVP.


Hope everyone has a happy and kosher Passover!
