It brings me great pleasure to avoid eating foods that are forbidden to me, like kitniyos, during Pesach. The fact that some Conservative Ashkenazi and fringe Orthodox Ashkenazi in Israel eat it does not affect me in any way. But to each their own.

I'm guessing these Ashkenazi who eat kitniyos are not saying selichos for 30 days like their Sephardic brethren who they want to mimic. I think that's called having your cake (kosher l'pesach, of course) and eating it to.

The No true Scotsman fallacy:

Person 1: "All Orthodox poskim (decisors of Jewish law) rule that Ashkenazim may never eat kitniyos on Pesach anywhere in the world, regardless of minhag hamakom (the local custom)"
Person 2: "Actually rabbi X and rabbi Y are Orthodox, having semicha (ordination) from a reputable Orthodox rabbinical school, are shomer mitzvot (observe all the commandments) and yet they believe that Ashkenazim in Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) may eat kitniyot"
Person 1: "If rabbi X and rabbi Y say that Ashkenazim may eat kitniyos in Eretz Yisroel, then they're davka not Orthodox".

Same goes for Orthodox rabbis who allow women to wear tefillin and who accept Conservative conversions.

They may be orthodox, but they are fringe. They should be quietly poskining for their kids, not making media spectacles out of their radical and largely unacceptable ideas. Women in tefillin. Really? MOD CUT

Let's let men do the things men do, and women do the things women do, and knock off all this gender bending mania. That's for the goyim.

Sure you do. There must be a Sephardi/Mizrahi somewhere in your line.

Funny, my whole family loves matza. We usually eat between 50-65 pounds of matza a year. Had it for dinner last night.

Do you make your own or do you buy it?

I've always wanted to try and make it myself.

Past making a Matza Brei, we rarely finish a box of Matza no matter how many family members are in the house.
