Sale of Chametz

Before Pesach, it is a requirement to eliminate all chametz (bread products or derivatives of bread products) from our possession. Jewish law allows for chametz, especially and preferably, only in non-bread-like form (e.g. liquors, mixtures, etc.) to be sold to a gentile in those circumstances when elimination is not an option. Arrangements for such sale may be made through Maharat Ruth Friedman using this form(Closed)

Deadline to submit is Tuesday, April 4 at 11 PM.


Wine Sale

Wine orders for our annual Pesach (Closed).

Free delivery with minimum purchase of 1 case (12 bottles), within 2 miles of Ohev. A portion of all wine sales will be donated to the shul thanks to the generosity of Potomac Wines & Spirits. 

Order deadline, Friday, March 24. Pick up will take place at Ohev, dates and times TBA


Seder Hosting

One of the best known lines of the Haggada is, “Let all who are hungry, come and eat.” Part of our celebration of Pesach involves welcoming guests into our homes for sedarim and meals. If you would like to host or be hosted for sedarim, please fill out the forms below. And if you would like any help arranging other Pesach meals please email

  • If you would like to host guests at your seder table please click here.
  • If you would like to be hosted by someone please click here.

This is a service that is available for all OSTNS members. If you are not a member and would like to participate please contact

Maot Chitim

Before Pesach we have the custom to donate money for “Maot Chitim” (which literally means wheat money) to help those in need prepare for the holiday. We are collecting money for Maot Chitim that Maharat Friedman will distribute to those in need, and also using this as an opportunity to replenish our Chesed Fund which we use to distribute funds throughout the year. To contribute please go to and choose “Maot Chitim” from the drop down menu.

If you are in need of extra support during this time please do not hesitate to contact Maharat Friedman. We are here to help.

Eiruv Tavshilin
When Yom Tov begins on a Thursday night and extends into Shabbat , we need to make what is called an “Eiruv Tavshilin.” Because we are not supposed to prepare anything that we need for the future on Yom Tov, we should not be able to prepare for Shabbat on Yom Tov. This can present logistical challenges, so there is an opportunity to make what is known as an Eruv Tavshilin on Thursday so that we can prepare for Shabbat on Friday.
