Pesach: April 8-16, 2020
Message from the Rabbi

It seems pretty clear now that all Pesach seders will be held by each and every one of you in your own homes.

How do we do it?

Stage one: Matzah. We will do our best that each and every Jew in the Kingdom will get Shmurah Matzah for both seders.

Stage two: Seder plate. We are working now to prepare a Seder-to-go. A box that will include: Hagada, the seder plate with all items, wine cup and more.

Stage Three: Shelf items. Here is a list of all items available at Chabad Thailand. The price is in THB. We will handle the shipping fees.

Stage Four: Ready meals. We can deliver to you a full Passover seder from A to Z.

Please contact us for more details.

Wishing you and your family a kosher and happy Passover,

Rabbi Bentzion and Mashie Butman

Community Seder



At this point it seems like we are not having one this year as conditions will not allow it.

Sell your chametz

Use this online form to sell your chametz for Passover.

Any non-disposed chametz must be sold to a non-Jew. Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends. Use this online form to quickly delegate a rabbi to sell your chametz for you.

Order Matzah

Traditional handmade shmurah matzah is recommended for seder use.

Shmurah means watched, and it is an apt description of this matzah, the ingredients of which (the flour and water) are watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing.

Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to use Shmurah Matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate.

Order your matzah today! We will reach to you nationwide and make sure you have your Shmura Matzah for the holiday!!!

Meal of Moshiach

Thursday, April 16

Just when you thought you had seen it all! This day, the final day of Passover, emphasizes an even higher Freedom! It is dedicated to our imminent and final redemption.

Following the custom of the Baal Shem Tov, founder of Chassidism, Passover concludes with a "Feast of Moshiach." This festive meal complete with Matzah and, yes, four cups of wine, begins before sunset. It is the perfect way to spiritually take leave of Passover and open our consciousness to the coming redemption.
