While the beginning of Leviticus talks about a person who is self motivated to bring a sacrifice, this week's portion is called Tzav, which means "command". The first part of the portion is dominated by a presentation of the meal offering which is called mincha; one of those "menachot" being the "toda", or thanksgiving offering. And this provides a fascinating connection to our current holiday of Passover. Indeed, one of the occasions the sages say to bring a toda offering is when one is released from prison, and there was no greater "jailbreak" than millions of Israelites escaping slavery in Egypt! As such, our seder meal is topped by the same matzah that comprised the toda offering of the temple. 

We have much to be thankful for on this holiday as a nation, but also individually and as a community. We emerge from this year cognizant of the loss and disruption, but pause on this occasion to remember all that we still have and enjoy. 

Selling of the Chametz can be done online  HERE.
The Rabbi is also available for in person transaction at your convenience.
