Kitniyot Controversy

Facebooktwittermail

Has the time come to stop refraining from eating Kitniyot (legumes) on Passover? Traditionally, Jews of European decent do not eat legumes during the holiday. Rabbi David Bar-Hayim joins Mottle Wolfe in this ‘best of’ episode to explain the origins of this custom and why it may no longer be relevant.

    I think I was told/learnt that the problem is:
    In the old days, or even today, kitniyot & wheat were grown in the same fields & could get mixed up.
    They could also get mixed up in the store or in the shipping/packaging process.
    Strict Jews of Sephardi persuasion, check their rice for wheat kernels.
    The topic is not so black & white.
    This topic needs a major investigation…Not just by 1 rabbi.
