Shabbat Shalom 

      As we get ready for Pesach in the week ahead, here are four ideas to keep in mind -

1. Kosher for Pesach - visit our website for detailed information, submit your questions online and always check a product for KP symbol.  Often supermarkets may include items in the Passover aisle which do not bear Passover supervision.

2. What Your Seder Secrets to enhance the experience...Learn and Share on our blog (click here) for your secrets, favorite recipes and more.  

3. Take a few minutes to find a few insights online or in a Hagaddah to share at your Seder. Vist our Website for ideas and sites.

4. Lend a Hand. Pesach Preparations can be all consuming so find ways to reach out to a host, a family member to assist or invite someone for a Pesach Seder or lunch.


Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach!
