“The Miracle of Salvation”, by George Fisher

We’ve never been part of a church that’s just getting started, so this is all new territory for us. The bottom line is, it’s AWESOME! It’s incredible to see God at work, bringing people together and making the pieces fall into place. For the first time in years, we are truly excited about being in a Sunday morning service. We haven’t worshipped and learned like we are now in quite some time. Everyone has been warm and friendly; but even better than that, they are genuine. We have our new church family!

Questions and Answers

Ask the Rabbi: Quinoa on Pesach
Dear Rabbi Simon,
Where do you stand on quinoa (and the kitniyot ban) for Pesach?
Many thanks,
Tzippy

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
