Pesach Notification

וואס טרינק איך פאר די ארבע כוסות? מעג איך עסן מצה ומרור?י

הערט א גאר אינפארמעטיווע און וויכטיגע אינטערוויו מיט אינפארמאציע און אנווייזונגן וואס איז ספעציעל נוגע פאר קראונס און קלייטיס פאציענטן אום פסח
אויף קול מבשר, 212-444-1100 
און דריקט 3-1 דערנאך 1558#
וזאת למודעה: אלעס וואס עס ווערט אויסגעשמועסט אויפן אינטערוויו, איז אויסגעארבייט געווארן אדורך גדולי מורי הוראה 

פאר סיי וואספארא פראבלעם איר האט אום יו"ט און איבערן גאנץ יאר קענט איר אונז רופן אויף 718-635-2274

As the Yom Tov Pesach is approaching, we would like to Invite you to listen to an important and informative interview in Yiddish, discussing the Halachas regarding Arba Kosos, Shiurimof Matzah and Maror, and more.
You can listen to it on the Kol Mevaser Hotline, at 212-444-1100, press 3-1, and then 1558#

Pesach is a favorite holiday, we all gather with our families and discuss the miracle of our redemption and remember the freedom granted to us by Hashem. In that remembrance, we have the Seder, Matzah, and Arba Kosos. To most, these appear to be fun parts of the holiday to approach joyously. But to a Crohn’s or Colitis patient, it can be slightly nerve inducing as the least digestive friendly holiday approaches.

First, it is important to remember that many medications interact with alcohol. Be wary of this and ask your physician before consuming your Arba Kosos. remember, if you are taking Antibiotics (As Flagyl – Metronidazol and same goes to a lot of other) you are not allowed to drink any alcohol! All other IBD patients should please double check with your doctor if the effectiveness of your medication will not be decreased or render them useless while mixing them with alcohol

Simply skipping medication is not the answer to the very real problem! You should exercise extreme caution and consult with your doctor and Rabbi/Rav before deciding not to take a medication on Pesach As important as one treats the laws of Kashrus, one is also obligated to treat the Mitzvah of "V'Nishmartem M'Od L'Nafshotaichem" - "Take care of your health". Therefore, under no circumstances should an individual forego taking a prescribed medication of Pesach (and during the year...) without first consulting one's physician and Rav for a careful analysis of the situation.

Second, Matzah is notoriously harsh on the stomach, and in order to stay healthy and safe, you have to take precautions. Speak with your physician and your Rav about how you should approach eating matzah this coming Pesach, all information on the above-mentioned Yiddish Interview has been discussed and guided by Rabbanim.

Please call your doctor if you have any issues, if you have a problem reaching your doctor, feel free to contact us anytime, we will try our best to get you through. Do not hesitate to call us anytime.

For any issue or emergency feel free to call us anytime, even during Shabbos/Yom-Tov, 718-635-2274.

Please forward this email to all patients and their families who may benefit.

Big Thanks to Abigail Winokur for the help!

We would like to wish you a Chag Kosher V'Samayach! A happy and healthy Yom Tov!

JCCSG Redemption Retreat

We are excited to present our long-awaited REDEMPTION HEALING RETREAT for women with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis.



At the JCCSG, we honor more than just your medical needs and treatment. As members of the Crohn’s and Colitis community ourselves, we recognize the vital role prevention plays in our health. We are committed to surviving, but it’s time to experience thriving!

We know how it feels to lose control, to lose our sense of self, when it feels like illness has taken over and leads the way.
We know the drain, the shame, and the humiliation of managing our symptoms on a daily basis.
We have all experienced the broken dreams and shattered hopes. We understand because due to illness, we’ve also been scared to begin dreaming again.

But we also know that we don’t have to live our lives this way.

Our inaugural retreat is geared toward Jewish women who share the struggle and burden of illness, but know that there is so much more to life. This is for the woman who is ready to take a deeper look, to make new friendships, laugh, have fun, and work with trained professionals to receive the knowledge and tools to thrive.

Redemption begins within. Join us for an experience of community, growth and healing this June 10-12. Slots are filling up quickly! Save your slot now!
