G-d's back

A 7-year old asks about G-d

Dear Rabbi Simon, Yehudah (aged 7 in year 3) asked me how G-d communicates if He has no body.  He also wondered what Moshe saw on Sinai in where it appears he saw G-d’s back.  He then asked me to talk about dinosaurs in order to change the subject. Do you have any suggestions on how to address this question…

Ask the Rabbi: Quinoa on Pesach
Dear Rabbi Simon,
Where do you stand on quinoa (and the kitniyot ban) for Pesach?
Many thanks,
Dear Tzippy,
In line with other American authorities, I am in favour of quinoa. Although I reject completely the voices (mostly from Israel) seeking to abolish the ban on kitniyot entirely, IMO we do not need to include in the prohibition pseudo-grains that were unknown in the Old World until modern times. Best to buy with a Pesach hechsher though, to be free of any possible wheat contamination.
Rabbi Rashi Simon
