Happy Passover!

Join us for Pesach at
Chabad of Squirrel Hill

 
Rabbi's Message
 

With Pesach fast approaching, but with times being as they are, we are unable/permitted to host our annual community seder.  We will miss celebrating with our community but are trying to find a way to still ensure that everyone can observe a meaningful seder at home.

With that in mind, we are offering Seder-to-Go kits for all who would like.  These kits will include a kiddush cup, bottle of grape juice, 3 shmura matzahs, a seder plate and all the seder plate items, a Haggadah and a Passover guide.  To order these kits (free of charge), please click HERE.  We ask that you please submit your order by April 1, so we can prepare adequately.

Additionally, if you need help with funds for Pesach food and expenses, please email ryaltein@chabadpgh.com, and we will be glad to help.

We are currently in the Jewish season of miracles and hope, with G‑d's help, that this challenging be behind us sooner than later.

Warm regards,
Rabbi Sruly and Chani Altein

  



     
 
Sell Your Chametz
 

Use this online form to sell your chametz for Pesach.

Any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. 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 Pesach and also to buy it back the evening after Pesach ends. Use this online form to quickly delegate a rabbi to sell your chametz for you.  Formal search for Chametz after nightfall on Tuesday night.

"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.

Meal of Moshiach
 

Thursday, April 16, 6:30 pm (starting with Mincha) at Lubavitch Center

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

Following the custom of the Baal Shem Tov, founder of Chassidism, Pesach concludes with a "Feast of Moshiach." This festive meal complete with Matzah and, yes, four cups of wine, begins before sunset. It is the perfect way to spiritually take leave of Pesach and open our consciousness to the coming redemption.
