Speaking this morning, Tuesday March 19th at the Cheder School in Toronto, Rabbi Saul Emanuel delivered a most powerful message to the student body. Listening intently, the students were taught about the extra stringencies when it comes to Passover and the need to check each and every product to ensure that it bears a reliable Kosher for Passover certification as well as the words ‘Kosher for Passover’ on each package.
Many a time, in error, supermarkets are placing Passover items together with non-Passover items and the unassuming consumer could make a mistake and cook Passover products which unfortunately turn out to be not for Passover. Rabbi Emanuel encouraged the students to impress upon their families to be vigilant with purchasing Passover products.
Rabbi Emanuel ended with a word of Blessing as the verse in this week’s Torah reading states, “Fire of Tamid Sacrifice should continue to burn on the alter and shall never be put out”, so too shall the flame of Torah, studied by these students, continue to be ignited by the students on a daily basis with fervor and drive and may they continue to develop and go from strength and strength.
