“The Miracle of Salvation”, by Helen Hart

What drew me to church were the strong family relationships. I grew up in church all my life, but did not know Christ Himself. He was so misrepresented in the religious ‘Christianity’ I knew. When I came to church I met genuine people who loved God and loved each other with all their hearts—people who live Christianity. I was loved on by people who made me feel that it was okay to be not okay sometimes. I didn’t have to put on a smile and act happy. I could come broken and meet a Jesus who really loves me.

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
