SELL CHAMETZ

Rabbi Jana will sell all of your chametz (also spelled 'hametz') whether it is in your home, office, or vehicles. Use the online Sale of Chametz form and pay online, or get the  printable form to the office. Traditionally a donation is made to B'nai Zion to sell your chametz. The donation will be used to offset the costs of helping people during Passover. Click here for the form to sell chametz.

COUNT THE OMER

Beginning the second night of Passover we count the Omer - seven times seven weeks = 49 days until Shavuot. Two of Rabbi Jana's favorite Omer counters are:

 

Count the Omer with Hillel Smith's animated artwork. (Cool designs that blend the Hebrew letter with the number it represents.)

 


Count the Omer with Homer Simpson (D'oh - way better than you think - a great source of Omer information, and even some details about what's Jewish with the Simpsons.) 

 

*Note that these sites "reset" for the second night of Passover. If you go to them during the rest of the year, the count will show completed, because it is from last year.

PASSOVER AND YIZKOR / MEMORIAL SERVICES
 

The first day of Passover we will have a service in the morning. We plan to offer the service in person and streamed on the B'nai Zion YouTube channel

The last day of Passover B'nai Zion will have a service that includes Yizkor. We plan to offer these services in person and on the B'nai Zion YouTube channel.

The current Memorial / Yizkor Book was used beginning Yom Kippur this year. It can be found HERE.

During the service we will read all of the names of people who have died during this Jewish year who are connected to our  B'nai Zion family. The current year Yizkor list is HERE

Contact Rabbi Jana if you want the names of your loved ones to be added to the list of those who died this year.
