Brief info

David doesn’t consider himelf a Chazan in the classical sense, only a “Jack (or Dovid) of all trades”.

He enjoys all sorts of music – Chassidic , “Jewish Pop”, Classical, and has been known to play guitar at Kesher and elsewhere on special occasions (too many to mention). Zvi has been a regular chain at Kesher since the very first Friday night in May 2004.

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
