Meal of Moshiach: Shabbat, April 23, 6:30 pm (starting with Minchah)

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.


Shmurah 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 your Shmurah Matzah today by calling or texting 617-909-8653. Pickup is at the Center for Jewish Life - 129 Lake street in Arlington.
