According to tradition, Ashkenazic Jews of European lands do not eat rice and beans (kitniyot) on Passover but Sephardim Jews from Spanish and Arabic lands do. As distinctions between Ashkenazim and Sephardim fade, and as restrictions on eating bean products ease in Israel, should we in America follow suit? Join Rabbi Grossman to weigh in on the question of whether or not to continue to observe this time honored Jewish tradition. Refreshments will be served after services.
