Service Dates and Times
This year, Pesach begins on Friday night the 19th of April. Kol Nefesh will hold services each festival day (Shabbat 20 April, Sunday 21 April, Friday 26 April, and Shabbat 27 April), 9.30am at the Leonard Sainer Centre.
Sale of Hametz
According to Jewish law, one must not have any hametz in his or her possession during Pesach. To accomplish this, we use up as much hametz as possible before the festival, we thoroughly clean our home, we check our home for hametz and symbolically burn hametz we find, and we recite a formula declaring any hametz that has not been found to be nullified “as the dust of the earth”. Finally, we sell any hametz we wish to keep over the festival to a non-Jew so that it will not formally be in our possession.
We have a form that allows anyone who wishes to sell their hametz to do so via the synagogue. The form appoints Chazan Jaclyn Chernett to act on your behalf in the sale of the hametz.
