Sell Your Chametz!
Once again, this year TBI is helping to facilitate the symbolic act of the selling of chametz, that celebrates the interdependence of Jews and their non-Jewish friends and neighbors. During the week of Passover, tradition teaches that we rid our homes of all leavened grain products, known as chametz in Hebrew. Today, the way this selling of chametz usually works involves members of a local Jewish community delegating the power to sell their personal chametz to a local rabbi, who then sells it (usually for a dollar) to a non-Jewish person in the community. After Passover, that non-Jewish friend sells the chametz back through the rabbi, also for a dollar. Click here to sell your chametz.
Mitzvah Kitchen: Passover Macaroons

You’ll learn how to make delicious coconut, chocolate dipped macaroons with Diane Schechter as we bake over 200 cookies for the community. And you’ll get to take home a half-dozen for your Seder or holiday treat. No previous baking experience needed. Children over 12 are welcome, it’s a great spring break activity.
