Maot Chittim

There is an ancient custom to give charity before Pesach to see that all Jews have their holiday needs taken care of. As opposed to Matanot Le’evyonim, which can easily be taken care of on the day of Purim, Maot Chittim are needed well in advance of Pesach to allow for proper distribution of funds.

The money will be distributed privately to local families in need as well as to Jewish Family Services and Yad Eliezer.  You may donate online by clicking on the links to the organizations named above or by giving a check to Rabbi Weinberg made out to "YIWH Rabbi's Discretionary Fund".

Mechirat Chametz (Sale of Chametz)

As you are aware, during the eight days of Pesach, our homes must be cleared of all grain products and all products that have any grain content. All such items are to be placed in designated areas and sold for the eight-day period to a non-Jew. During the entire Pesach, the designated cabinets should not be opened, and no items in the designated areas should be used during this period.
