Chag Sameach!
A Very Virtual Passover @ Adas Israel

Wednesday, April 8 - Thursday, April 16

The eight-day festival of Passover celebrates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. It is observed by avoiding leaven, and highlighted by the Seder experiences and the retelling of the Exodus. It is of course a deeply poignant moment for us to observe Passover this year, given our new realities. Together, we will march towards hope and freedom, see wonders, and give thanks for the abundant blessings in our lives. Dayenu. Please join us through the Adas Airwaves as we celebrate the holiday of freedom, together.

Passover Customs

   

Mehirat Hametz - Selling of the Hametz
Fill out THIS FORM to authorize Hazzan Goldsmith to sell your hametz
We are not always able to destroy or remove all of our hametz. So the rabbis ordained that a symbolic sale is made of all the hametz to a non-Jew in the community, who then sells it back to us after Pesach. The hametz is then no longer “in our possession.” This is normally done through the synagogue for the entire congregation. Please use this form. It is only necessary to sell or destroy food items; not dishes or utensils.

   

Biur Hametz – Burning of the Hametz with Hazzan Goldsmith
Wednesday, April 8 at 10am 
View live: facebook.com/adasisraeldc

Burn your leftover chametz with Hazzan Rachel Goldsmith live on the Adas Facebook page! Hazzan Goldsmith will be reviewing the blessing and customs for this Passover tradition. This day should be treated as an ordinary Erev Pesach in regard to biur hametz (removal of hametz). The burning of the hametz should be completed by about 10:00 am. The stove should be koshered for Pesach. All cooking should be done in Pesach pots and only Pesach utensils should be used. Food required for the first Seder should be cooked at this time.

   

Sefirat HaOmer - The Counting of the Omer
Begins The Second Night of Passover
Sefirat HaOmer Prayer Pages: Download Here
Beginning on the second night of Passover we begin to count 49 days, 7 weeks until we reach the wheat harvest and Revelation at Mount Sinai on Shavuot. We call this time the Sefirat HaOmer or “Counting of the Omer.” The Omer is counted each night after the sun goes down- if one forgets, you can say the blessing all day until nightfall the next evening.

   

Yizkor 
Thursday, April 16 @ 10:30amVirtual Yizkor Service: adasisrael.org/shabbat-services-livestream
Yizkor Service Pages: Download Here
Yizkor Memorial Booklet: Download Here
Yizkor in Hebrew, means "Remember." In this prayer, we implore G-d to remember the souls of our relatives and friends that have passed on. When we recite Yizkor, we renew and strengthen the connection between us and our loved one, bringing merit to the departed souls. Adas will be holding it's virtual Yizkor memorial service on the eighth day of Passover, April 16, beginning around 10:30am, following the Shacharit service.
