Pesach Notifications


Just another reminder (for the Arba Kosos…) If you are taking Flagyl - Metronidazol you are NOT allowed to drink any Alcohol!!! All other IBD patients please double check with your doctor if it’s not gonna harm you bad.

You should exercise extreme caution and consult with your doctor and Rabbi/Rav before making a decision not to take a medicine on Pasech. As important as one treats the laws of Kashrus, one is also obligated to treat the Mitzva of "V’Nishmartem M'od L’Nafshotaichem" - "Take care of your health". Therefore, under no circumstances should an individual forego taking a prescribed medication on Pesach (and during the year…) without first consulting one's physician and Rav for a careful analysis of the situation.

*Help Needed: We’re looking for someone who takes Cimzia and is willing to talk to a patient who is about to take it and wants to know more about it. If you can do it please contact us at 718-63-JCCSG – 718-635-2274 or by email.

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