FRIDAY MORNING

Shacharis: 7:00 am (at Chabad of Encino)

Burn Chometz by: 11:57 am  Click here for more info. There will be a communal Chometz burning at Chabad of Tarzana from 9:00 am - 11:57 am.
 

This year, while burning the chametz, we do not nullify the Chometz with the prayer Kol Chamira, rather we wait untill Shabbos morning to do so.

FRIDAY EVENING

Eating Challah on this Unique Shabbos - Friday Night

There is a mitzvah to eat bread at the Friday night and Shabbat morning meals. The dilemma on this unique Shabbos is, on the one hand by this time your house will already be cleaned for Pesach and Chometz-free. However, i t is also forbidden to eat matzah at this time, to ensure that we have a hearty appetite for it on Passover eve.

The solution is, we retain a small quantity of chametz such as challah rolls or pita to use for the Hamotzi blessing, and eat them carefully in a corner of the room away from the table. We then safely put away the remaining challah for the Shabbos morning meal.

Candle Lighting: 6:53 pm

Mincha/Maariv: 7:05 pm We recite the regular Friday night prayers of Kabolas Shabbos and Maariv. 

The Friday night meal is a regular Shabbos meal with the regular Shabbos Kiddush. 

Shabbos - March 27th - Shabbos Hagadol



SHABBOS MORNING

Shacharis: 7:30 am  We recite the regular Shabbos prayers. The Haftoro is the Special Haftoro for Shabbos Hagadol. (On Shabbas morning, services are held early so that the two challah loaves (which are chometz), can be eaten before the chometz eating deadline which is 10:54 am.)


Finish Eating Chometz Before: 10:54 am


Nullify Chometz Before: 11:56 am  As chometz cannot burned on Shabbos, any remaining challah pieces and crumbs should be flushed down the toilet. At this point, we recite the second Kol Chamira declaration, disowning any leftover chametz.  "All leaven and anything leavened that is in my possession - whether I have seen it or not, whether I have observed it or not, whether I have removed it or not - shall be considered naught and owner-less as the dust of the earth."​​​​​​
