Short Thought


Chametzis “leaven” — any food that’s made of grain and water that have been allowed to ferment and “rise.” Bread, cereal, cake, cookies, pizza, pasta, and beer are blatant examples of chametz; but any food that contains grain or grain derivatives can be, and often is, chametz. Practically speaking, any processed food that is not certified “Kosher for Passover” may potentially include chametz ingredients.

From the morning of Passover eve until the conclusion of the festival — for approximately eight days and eight hours — we avoid eating chametz or anything containing the slightest vestige thereof. It is also forbidden to own chametz, to derive benefit from chametz in any way, or to have chametz physically present in our domain, during this time.

Little Shmuli Rabinowitz greeted his Bubbie with a hug and said:

“I’m so happy to see you, Bubbie. Now Daddy will do the trick he has been promising us.”

“What trick’s that?” she asked.

“Well,” said little Shmuli excitedly, “I heard Daddy tell Mommy that he would climb the walls if you ever came to visit us again.”


Moshiach and the future Redemption

There are a number of ways conducive to hasten the Messianic redemption prior to its final date. Generally speaking these involve the observance of some special mitzvot which constitute comprehensive principles of the Torah.
