New Trends: Chametz Truck and Chametz Soup Kitchen
It is reported that Rabbi Mottelle, the Vizhntzer Rebbe in Monsey has launched some cutting-edge new pre-Passover services to his vibrant community in Monsey, New York.
For one, women can now completely dedicate themselves to the gargantuan task of cleaning for Passover without worrying about satisfying their men’s growling stomachs. You wanna eat chametz? Go to the Soup Kitchen! For $5 per head anyone can have a meal from a public kitchen provided by the congregation. Separate seating is provided for men and women to conform to the rigors of Ultra-orthodox observance.
But it gets better. Mirroring the ‘ice cream truck” of the mainstream –which is of course too modern and “goyish” for Hasidic sensibility– the “chamez truck” makes its rounds around town at meal time breakfast and lunch. Parents who want to supply their children with a chametz sandwhich for breakfast or lunch can rely on the chametz truck to sell it to them once their kitchen is no longer operational.
Sandwiches, including delivery are only $1.50.
Now that’s what we call a Rebbe. Go Mottelle go!
