Pesach is our holiday of Freedom, and usually we are surrounded by family and friends to celebrate it. This year it will be different, and in many ways unique.

Whilst most of us are in confinement, you might think that this rules out enjoying Pesach fully. Well, theres no need to be downhearted, we can still celebrate together, even if it is at a distance.

By observing the mitzvot of Pesach, you are connecting with millions of Jews across the world, and celebrating our shared heritage, and our liberation from enslavement and the beginning of our journey to receiving the Torah.

We at the EJA have created this short resource page to help you get started, and get you everything you need to celebrate the holiday. From us to you and your families: chag sameach and next year in Jerusalem!

Selling your chametz:

You might have your own way of doing this, but with corona selling your chametz might be  a bit trickier for you.  Fret no more!

Thanks to Rabbi Mihoel Rosenblum at www.theshul.eu , we are able to offer you a free service to sell your chametz. Just follow this link.
