Curious about what is clean and unclean?
What can you eat that is Kosher?
Not all products have a Kosher Seal but it doesn’t mean they have unkosher ingredients. Obtaining a Kosher seal costs money and some businesses don’t have the money to pay someone to perform a blessing and give them a seal.

Prepare for Passover

April 2019 J.B. Bernstein is coming to Eitz Chaim to teach us how to share our faith in preparation for the April 22nd Passover Seder Outreach to the community.

As Part of our preparation we are wanting all of our adults to work on memorizing verses to share with people they meet. We are beginning with John 1:12 and John 3:3 please try and learn it in the NIV  – this is the most user friendly version for non believers.
Week six Scriptures:
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.  New International Version (NIV)
John 20:31 But these are written that you may believe[a] that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. New International Version (NIV)
