Passover Items

Q: Rabbi Maroof,

I enjoyed your lecture last night and saw your responses on the blog.

Here's another question: Do lemon jice, ketchup or toothpaste need special labels for pesach.

Chag Sameach.

Abe Akresh

A: Dear Abe,

Toothpaste and other inedible items do not require any supervision for Pesah, unless of course you plan on eating them!

100% Pure Lemon Juice does NOT require any special Passover label.

With regard to ketchup - it is hard to generalize about such products without addressing specific brand names, since every company's formula is somewhat different. Some brands of ketchup may contain vinegar, modified food starch, or other ingredients that could be hametz.

I can tell you that regular Heinz Ketchup is kosher for Passover even without a Passover label.

Hag Kasher V'Sameah,

Rabbi Maroof

Thank you for the informative presentation on Passover and the differences between Sephardic and Ashkenazi practices on hametz. Is the Passover newsletter available online? I would like to share it with friends, although Passover is almost past ... over.

Stephen, if you send me your email address, I would be more than happy to provide you with the "Laws of Passover" handout electronically (i.e., as a Word file.)

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads
up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post
to let you know. The design and style look great though!
Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
But think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts
more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video
clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
Awesome blog!

who experienced their phones hanging around their necks on a lanyard (admittedly these were not
smart phones 5 years ago in Russia).

I experienced a tistaste for schooling,? I used to be a good student, I didn't disrupt class, but I hated the way all my academics aside from 1 did not permit me to experiment, to let my curiosity to wander totally free, they fed views down my throat and didn't allow me to speak my mind.
They mentioned how things come about but I wished to understand why factors the way they are.
I hated things getting pressured on me and not allowing any interest to grow.
