On Passover, Jewish families around the world will observe a 3,300 year old tradition by gathering around the festive table to commemorate the Exodus from Egypt and celebrate the Pesach Seder.
Here at the Chabad Jewish Center, we aim to connect the dots, bringing modern day relevance and meaning to our rich traditions.
We invite you and your family to join us for one or all our programs this Passover season, and throughout the year.
We'd like to take the opportunity to wish you and your family a happy, healthy and Kosher Passover.

Sell Your Chametz

Use this online form to sell your chametz for Pesach.

Chametz is any bread, pastry or dough-based food that has had a chance to rise. We sell any remaining chametz found in our possession for the duration of Passover. Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends. Use this online form to quickly delegate a rabbi to sell your chametz for you.
Maos Chittim
\"All who are hungry, let them come and eat.\" We must ensure that our brothers and sisters have the means to celebrate freedom too.

Most of the people who are hungry will not be standing in our dining rooms as we begin our Seder, waiting for the invitation. As such, in preparation for the Passover holiday, it is age-old Jewish tradition to contribute generously towards funds that ensure that indeed everyone who is in need has the necessary provisions for the holiday—food, matzah, wine, festive clothing, etc.

Order Matzah
Traditional handmade shmurah matzah is recommended for seder use.

Shmurah means watched, and it is an apt description of this matzah, the ingredients of which (the flour and water) are watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing.

Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to use Shmurah Matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate.

Order a complimentary matzah today!
(for larger quantities of Shmura Matzah, please contact us) 
Meal of Moshiach

Shabbat, April 27, 12:00 pm (following Yizkor services)

Just when you thought you had seen it all! This day, the final day of Pesach, emphasizes an even higher Freedom! It is dedicated the time of redemption and Moshiach.

Following the custom of the Baal Shem Tov, founder of Chassidism, Pesach concludes with a \"Feast of Moshiach.\" This mystical and festive meal complete with Matzah and, yes, four cups of wine, is the perfect way to spiritually take leave of Passover explore our personal and collective journey to a true state of freedom.
