The Knesset Sells Its Chametz Ahead Of Yomtov


Jerusalem Chief Rabbi  HaRav Aryeh Stern visited the Knesset on Tuesday to meet with the Director-General of the Israeli parliament, Albert Sachrovitz, who was the shaliach to sell the Knesset’s chametz. The two are seen in the attached photo.

The rav gave a bracha for Yerushalayim and the director-general, calling “for achdus among the people so we may all have a Chag Somayach.”

Aviad Gutman, who is responsible for the Knesset’s kashrus added: “A great deal of preparations were done to clean the entire Knesset as required, including the removal of chametz for any and every department in the building. A bedikas chametz will be done in all areas as well. The entire Knesset will be kosher for Pesach, and the administration of the Knesset wishes all of Beis Yisrael a Chag Kasher V’somayach with much family simcha, and national achdus.”
