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 Eight Scriptures:
Isaiah 53:6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. (NIV)

Leviticus 17:11 For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life. (NIV)
