The 7th in a continuing series of interactive lectures conducted by Rabbi Robert L. Wolkoff from Congregation B'nai Tikvah in North Brunswick NJ.

The topic will be Kitniyot (Legumes) on Passover: The rise and fall and rise of a “foolish custom”.

If you ever wanted to know why (ashkenazic) you can’t eat rice, but your (sefardic) neighbor can/why you can’t use peanuts but you can use peanut oil/what’s up with canola oil, this is the class for you.

And while we’re talking about this, we’ll learn all about the force of custom in Jewish law.
