The Mitzvah of Elimination of Chametz 
Rabbi Binyomin Bitton 
Chabad of Downtown

 

Pesach, The Festival of Liberation is uniquely rich among the holidays, overflowing with many varied mitzvot. Some of these mitzvot have many branches in Talmudic and halachic literature, with many deliberations revolving around various definitions and investigations. This lecture will focus on the mitzvah of the removal of chametz, or, as this mitzvah is known in the halachic sources, the mitzvah of tashbitu. Every mitzvah and idea in the Torah, is colored by various aspects and principles. An experience of deep and reflective Talmudic study from Torah sources defining the mitzvah of the removal of chametz lies before us.
