Passover March 29

Beth Shalom will hold a Passover Sedar on the first evening of Pesach, Monday, March 29.  Check future Beth Shalom e-mails for starting time, prices and other details.

Shmurah Matzah is in!

Enjoy Pesach the way our ancestors did with hand-made shmurah matzah!  This matzah is made from wheat that has been carefully guarded from the time of harvesting through the hand-baking process to ensure the strictest standard of kashrut and suitability for Pesach.  A shipment has just arrived from Brooklyn at the Judaic Resource Center in Des Moines.

As usual, Bob Rabinoff will be making his annual trip to Des Moines to pick up Pesach supplies and shmurah matzah.  If you would like to order shmurah matzah please let Bob know by email at: or before March 14.  The shmurah matzah comes in 1 pound boxes and costs about $15-20/box.
