Passover Resources

  • New Dishes: Due to the current circumstances, there are no Keilim Mikvaot open in Houston. As such, the obligation to immerse new dishes in the mikva before use, cannot be fulfilled. If you must purchase new dishes, pots and pans etc. for Pesach this year please click this link for instructions on what to do. 

  • Seder In A Box: I have worked with Jenny Tavor on the creation of a “Seder In A Box” available for those who are seeking assistance in making a seder. The box contains the ritual items needed to have a halachically proper seder. It will also include a concise guide to making a seder. Details: SEDER IN A BOX. $ 36.00, 2 x Seder Plates including: Romaine leaves , Shankbone, Roasted egg, Fresh Horseradish, Parsley , Haroset , Salt Wate, 2 x 22 ounce bottles of Grape Juice , 2 x boxes of Matzah

  • Kosher For Passover Food: Jenny also offers a Kosher For Passover Catering. Please click here (Click on Menus and then on Passover 2020). Do not be concerned with minimum amounts. She will work with each customer to meet their needs. Email Jenny at tavorjenny@gmail.com
