Coronavirus Not Interfering with the MNPD's Assistance to the West End Synagogue During the Passover Holiday

4/8/2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The coronavirus is not interfering with the MNPD’s 26-year tradition of assisting the congregation of the West End Synagogue in its celebration of the Passover holiday.

Rabbi Joshua Kullock and Chief Steve Anderson, both wearing facemasks and practicing social distancing, met this morning outside the synagogue so that Chief Anderson could ceremoniously purchase the congregation’s leavened products. Jews are prohibited from owning items such as bread, cereals, and even beer during the holiday. A rabbi is given power of attorney to sell the products to a non-Jew until Passover has ended. Rabbi Kullock will buy back the leavened products from Chief Anderson late next week.

The MNPD is proud to support this tradition for the 26th consecutive year.
