-Three  important reminders for this exciting Shabbos.

1.The last time Chametz can be eaten on Shabbos morning is at 10:33am.

2.Don’t forget to say “Kol Chamira” - nullifying all chametz in your possession by 11:48am on Shabbos morning. This is recited after having completely removed any leftover chametz.  

3.No preparations for the Seder are permitted on Shabbos.  This includes warming up food and setting the table.  Please wait until 7:57pm, when Shabbos is over to start preparing for the Seder.

-The fourth part to the order of the Seder is “yachatz”, in which we split the middle Matzah into two pieces.  One piece remains for the eating of Matza and the other part is “Tzafun”, “hidden away”, as the afikoman to be eaten later.  The Chasam Sofer explains that the symbolism of Yachatz is that the Seder night is divided into two parts.  The first part focuses on that which happened in Mitzrayim and the redemption that resulted.  The second part of the night which is represented by the hidden Matzah corresponds to the future redemption, the nature of which remains hidden to us at this time.  The focus of the seder night should be about the tradition that we are passing to the next generation. It is about the tradition of a people who have experienced a redemption from slavery, yet who await to be redeemed once again. May we merit to see the fulfillment of the promised redemption in our time before our very eyes.

-Good Shabbos! And Chag Kasher V’samayach
