    While the High Holy Days and

    Chanukah were very early this

    year, Purim and Passover are

    later than might have been anticipated.

    How is this possible? Remember that the Jewish calendar is a 

    lunar calendar, and there are only 354 days in a year. With

    approximately 11 fewer days in a Jewish year than in a secular

    year, after three years’ time, the Jewish calendar would lose an

    entire month. For that reason, we insert a leap month at the

    very end of the Jewish year. is means that on February 1,

    2014 we begin Adar I (the twelfth month) and on March 3,

    2014 we begin Adar II (a thirteenth Hebrew month!). is also

    means Purim is pushed back to Adar II and is celebrated on

    Saturday night, March 15 and Sunday, March 16, 2014.

    Since we now have one additional month to prepare for

    Purim, let me put forth that there are actually four mitzvot 

    (commandments) to fulfill: hearing the Megillah read evening 

    and morning, giving gifts to friends ( Mishloach manot ), giving 

    gifts to those in need ( Matanot l’evyonim), and partaking in

    festive meal (seudah) on Purim afternoon.

    It is interesting to note that Purim originally appeared amo

    the Jews of Persia who, even before the onset of Purim as a form

    holiday, were accustomed to celebrating a spring masquera

    festival each year in the middle of the last winter month. It is al

    noteworthy that in the Book of Esther, God’s name is never me

    tioned, despite the fact that throughout the Tanakh (Jewish Bib

    nothing takes place without God’s intervention.

    Purim is the only Jewish holiday not imbued with som

    form of religious solemnity. It is a day of great feasting an

    drinking (responsibly, please!) until we cannot decipher betwe

    the phrases “blessed is Mordechai” and “cursed is Haman.” O

    the deepest level, though, Purim is about putting on our mas

    and costumes in order to reveal our true identity. It is actua

    a very profound concept and one worth contemplating.

    Susan, Atara, Micah and Elan join me in wishing you

    Happy Purim and a Happy Passover!

    A Late Purim: The Lunar Calendar RevealedRabbi Joseph H. Krakoff [email protected] • @rabbikrakoff 

    What is it that keeps you up at

    night? ank God, for a ma- jority of Jews, it is not the

    threat of annihilation that we confront–as

    they did in the days of Purim–or the question of from where our

    next meal might come–as they did in the days of the Exodus

    that we celebrate on Passover. Rather, we worry about aging 

    parents or raising good, Jewish children and grandchildren. We

     worry about job stability or retirement realities. We worry 

    about our own health and the health of those whom we love.

     We worry about the future of the Jewish people and we worry 

     whether the lives we are leading are ones of true meaning and

    purpose. We worry about our legacies and about how and if we will be remembered after our days on earth come to an end.

     We worry. We ALL worry.

     Yet, it is those exact worries that our synagogue addresses on a 

    daily basis. rough our prayer services and our adult education

    opportunities, we confront the realities of life in the 21st century 

    and seek to find comfort from, and meaning in, those concerns.

    rough individual conversations with Rabbi Krakoff and me, or

     with Hazzan Propis and Assistant Cantor Gutman, we can ad-

    dress specific situations and invite God into our lives. rough

    spending times with friends new and old within the synagogue,

     we come to learn that there are others sharing the same c

    cerns; we come to discover we are not alone in our struggrough engaging Jewish life in our most difficult times as w

    as our most joyful (note: Purim and Passover are holidays

    celebration!), we remember that there is strength in faith.

     And, while the majority of Jews are not threatened w

    physical annihilation or crises of hunger, there are some w

    still are. As a community, we can more successfully protect Is

    from her enemies and we more actively rally together in t

    acts of Tikkun Olam: helping to feed the hungry and raise up

    poor. e stories of Purim and Passover are not one-time eve

    but recurring themes in history. Let us not forget that the

    tion that sought to destroy the Jews during the time of Puis the same seeking to develop nuclear technology today (P

    sia = Iran). Let us also not forget the Passover obligation t

    each of us must regard ourselves as having come out of Egy

    and that we must declare, Let all who are hungry come and

    Congregation Shaarey Zedek is truly a sacred commun

    Let us join together in the coming months to address those c

    cerns that keep us up at night; let us unite to right the wro

    of society; and, perhaps most of all, let us together celebrate

    miracles God performed for us in days of old … and today as w

    What is it that keeps you up at night?Rabbi Aaron L. Starr [email protected] • @rabbistarr Rabbi Aaron Starr

    KASHERING OF UTENSILSe process of kashering utensils depends on how the utensare used. According to halakah, leaven can be purged froa utensil by the same process in which it was absorbed

    Leyl Chametz Kabbalat Shabbat Service and Dinner

    The Torah prohibits the eating of chametz (leavened bread) during the festival of Pesach (Exodus12:15-20), referring to food prepared from five species of grain—wheat, barley, oats, spelt, andrye—that has been allowed to rise. To theseforbidden grains, Ashkenazic rabbis added rice, millet,corn, and legumes (kitniyot ). Before the advent of Pesach all leaven must be removed from one’spremises/legal possession.

     e Selling of Leaven ( Mechirat Chametz)One must not have any leaven in his/her legal possession during Pesach. To sell excess chametz, we use an authorizationdocument that gives Assistant Cantor Leonard Gutman, the buyer, power of attorney to sell it to someone who is not Jew-ish. ose who wish to sell their leaven sign their names under this agency appointment and authorize Assistant CantorGutman to act on their behalf. At the conclusion of Pesach he/she buys it back. While this transaction is not intended tobe a real sale, it satisfies the requirement of the law forbidding the possession of leaven by Jews during Passover. You canform from page 11 or sign it at morning minyan beginning the week before Pesach.

     e Search for Leaven ( Bedikat Chametz) - Sunday evening, April 13 e night before Pesach, immediately after sundown, we begin the search for leaven. Our aim is to insure that no leaven hasbeen left behind after the cleaning of the house. Places where no leaven is used during the year do not need to be searched.

     e procedure is as follows: a candle is lit, the blessing is recited, and the house is searched by the light of the candle. Sinceby this time the house has been cleaned thoroughly and the chances of finding any leaven are minimal, it has become cus-tomary to put a number of bread pieces in places where they can be easily found. e crumbs of bread that are found andthe leaven left over for breakfast should be guarded carefully lest a new search become necessary. Kits are available from CSZMen’s Club by calling the Synagogue.

     e Nullification and Burning of Leaven ( Bittul/Biur Chametz) After the search for leaven, one recites the formula for bittul chametz – nullification. e following morning (Monday, April14, 2014), between ten and eleven o’clock, the leaven is disposed of and the formula for bittul/biur chametz is recited. If aperson is leaving on a trip during the thirty days preceding Pesach and does not plan to be back by the start of Pesach, he/sheshould perform bedikat chametz  without a blessing before departing (prior to the thirty days preceding Pesach nobedikah is necessary). Families that go away for the entire Pesach period should sell their leaven and lock up the house. ey 

    need not do any additional preparation for Pesach.

     e Fast of the First-Born - Monday, April 14, 2014- 7:00 a.m. A first-born son should fast on this day to commemorate the deliverance of the first-born Israelites in Egypt. Rabbi Krakoff  will celebrate a siyyum (concluding a section of Rabbinic literature he has been learning) after morning services. Sinceeating at such an occasion is a mitzvah, any first-born who present at the siyyum may join in the festivities and eat, thereby counteracting the fast.
