Non Ashkenazi Jews and Kitniyot on Pesach

Posted by on 1:55 am in Podcast, Talking in Shul | 1 comment

This week on the podcast we’re talking about non-Ashkenazi Judaism with Sigal Samuel, Opinion editor of the Forward, and about the great Kitniyot debate. This year the Conservative movement released a responsum permitting Ashkenazi Jews to do what non-Ashkenazi Jews have been doing for centuries: eat rice, beans, and other legumes on Passover.
