CKids: Passover Freedom Machine Sunday 10 April 2022, 13:00-14:30 ​ Kids will work together to invent their own Rube Goldberg freedom machine that will be the perfect Seder centrepiece. ​ Sell your Chametz​ On the holiday of Passover, we are commanded not to have any chametz in our possession. Any food that is made out of grain that has been allowed to rise (ferment) is chametz. Common chametz items include bread, cakes, breakfast cereals, pastas, many liquors and more. Any chametz that was in the possession of a Jew during Passover is forbidden, even after Passover ends. This applies even if the chametz is locked up and out of sight. ​ The solution (as explained in the Code of Jewish Law, O.C. 448) is the “Sale of Chametz,” in which the food is sold to a non-Jew before Passover. After the holiday, the non-Jew sells it back, and it can once again be enjoyed. ​ Since the mid-1990s, Chabad.org has offered an online form through which you can authorize a rabbi to sell your chametz to a non-Jew on your behalf. ​ Fill out the form to sell your Chametz. ​ Donate Seder on the Canal will cost £9,000 to host and we expect to cover only half of this amount with income from ticket sales. Please donate to help us keep our programme affordable for everyone to join.
