Shabbat Pesach 1 (Exodus 12:21 – 12:51 & Numbers 28:16 – 28:25)

From a food perspective, Passover is of course all about avoiding chametz – or wheat products that have risen, either due to agents like yeast or just from time and interaction with natural bacteria.

The idea of bread rising relates directly to that of being puffed up or prideful.

SO… limited only by your creativity and the category of food which you will be assigned when you let us know you can join us, please bring a food which is not proud. The rest, like Torah itself, is yours to interperet.
