Shalom!
 
We at Jewish Values Online are busy getting ready for the holiday of Passover, which falls between sundown on April 22nd and sundown on April 30th (or 29th for those who observe 7 days). That means our panelists and staff are going to need to focus on observing the holiday, and that responses to questions and emails will be delayed. Please be patient.
The website will continue to function, so you are able to find information, and even submit questions which will be handled after the holiday.
 
Meantime, a series of posted questions related to Passover will appear in the JVO Jew Qs box (widget) on our page, and new blog entries will be posted (though perhaps not on the same schedule as usually). We hope you will enjoy them.
 
Thank you for understanding, and for your continuing interest in Jewish Values, Ethics, Mores, and Proper Behavior.
 
We wish all who are celebrating Passover a sweet, joyful holiday. For those who do not celebrate Passover,we wish you a good week.
