Statement Re: Pesach Shop

For seven years Chabad of North East London and Essex has opened a Pesach shop each year to assist the community with their preparation for Pesach.

The brain child and effort behind this project was our dear friend Mr Brian Mitchell.

Unfortunately, he suffered a serious setback in his health about six months ago. TG he is making good progress, but unable to continue this project this year.

Sadly we cannot run this project as:

-          We have nobody to undertake this mammoth task.

-          We cannot raise the capital investment needed of approx 25 – 30k to get the project underway.

-          Year on year the take up of this service became less making planning extremely difficult.

-          Last year we suffered an overall loss of £8,000.

We are sorry that we cannot offer this service this year and hope the community will get together to help each other out with their shopping needs. In particular we would ask you to have in mind the elderly and infirm and those without transport of their own.

Wishing you all a very happy and Kosher Pesach.

Weekly message from Rabbi A. M. Sufrin MBE

Dear Friends,  

I am delighted to report that our communal Seder numbers just one week away now is close to 100 participants. We still have places available for anybody in need or wishing to join our exciting and meaningful Seder. BUT please call in and book your place by Monday / Tuesday next week.

Following our amazing success in Epping two weeks ago a meeting has now been set for after Pesach to discuss the Spring / Summer months programme of events for Epping.

This Shabbos Rabbi & Mrs Sufrin will be in Southend & Westcliff as part of our developing relationship with this community and developing Chabad’s activities.

This Shabbos is known as Shabbos Hagodol - The Great Shabbos. It was on this Shabbos that the Jewish People were told to take a lamb and tie it to their bedposts for four days which was to become the Korban Pesach – The Paschal offering. This offering is symbolically remembered on our Seder plate with the shank bone (not eaten) but again symbolically eaten with the afikomen that we consume after our meal before Bentching (grace after meals). It is the blood from this sacrifice that they were commanded to place on the doorposts and lintel over which G-d would pass over (hence the name Passover – Pesach) the home of the Hebrews whilst passing through Egypt killing the firstborn in the last of the ten plagues.

The Jewish People listened to G-d’s instruction and had no fear for the Egyptians who may have challenged them on their actions, to which they would have been answered “Our G-d has instructed us to do this…..”

What could have turned out to be a major battle between the Egyptians who were their task masters and the Jewish People, passed peacefully and was allowed to happen. Hence this Shabbos is called the great Shabbos, as this was the starting point in real terms of our exodus from Egypt.

On Shabbos afternoon between Mincha and Maariv we have the custom to recite part of the Hagadah service in the Synagogue.

Please remember to sell your Chometz. You can sign one of our Chometz forms or if you wish to see Rabbi Sufrin direct to sign the main form, he is at the Centre on Sunday morning from after Shacharis 9.30 through to 2pm, each morning after Shacharis 7.30am or by prior arrangement until Thursday.

Wishing you and your Family, a lovely Shabbos and a peaceful week as we prepare for the big day. Enjoy the experience!!
