  Potluck Kiddush on the Last Days of Pesach 

Potluck Kiddush on the Last Days of Pesach
On the last day(s) of Pesach, in keeping with our existing practice, we will be having a potluck kiddush.  Please refer to the excerpt from the Netivot Shalom kashrut policy found below if you are intending to bring food for the kiddush.   This kiddush has always been a great way to use food that will be left over after Pesach and we encourage you to participate. 
Pesach Kiddush Policy:
In order to ensure that all food served is in accordance with the more stringent strictures applicable during Pesach, all contributions to the Kiddush must be store bought and in their original sealed packages. Please ensure that all products have mainstream well-accepted hashgahot such as OU, OK, Kof-K, Star- K, CRC, and COR. Any products bought in stores under the RCBC are also fine. If you have any questions about any product, please contact R. Helfgot directly before Yom Tov. Please note that there are many products marked Kosher for Passover that contain kitniyot, such as corn syrup, corn oil, and sesame seeds/oil, including snacks, halva etc. Our policy excludes these items for Pesach -- please do not bring them since they will not be served.
The clean up team for the last day is you--everyone is asked to pitch in and help clean up. Thank you
Post-Pesach Food Drive
 MATZA, TUNA, MAYO, CANNED GOODS, OIL, SODA, JUICE, KETCHUP, SPICES, JAM, MIXES, CANDY, ETC……What to do with unopened food from Pesach? We will once again be collecting all of your unopened, non-perishable food to be donated to local Gmachs and food pantries. Please drop off the food from Sunday, April 12, until Sunday, April 19 at the home of: Debby & AZ Rapps- 1499 Sussex Rd, (Corner Warwick) Teaneck (201)837-9683. Please leave food on the back deck, on Warwick Ave., during daylight hours so that animals don’t get into it overnight. Please don’t leave the food in the rain. Thank you and Tizku lemitzviot.
