I am a traditional conservative Jew and follow Passover guidelines for that branch, which up until recently forbade green beans, rice, popcorn, etc. Even with the new, less restrictive rules for Ashkenazi conservative Jews, I still feel "weird" having a side course of rice or legumes during this time.

What say you? I buy a few "ready-made" kosher dinner platters for during the week - and these have never had rice or whatever as a side option. (I select from the "typical" - tzsimmes, kugel, potato, etc., - to add to the main dish of chicken or beef.)

What say you?

(Also, can anyone recommend a kosher-for-P breakfast cereal? The ones I've tried taste like cardboard, and it's a punishment to get through a bowl.)

I know a few conservative Jews who are allowing kitniyot these days. To those who ask me about it, I usually reply: "Bean there, done that."

We're Conservative and don't do kitniyot in our house.
But we don't take issue if were invited to a meal where the host serves it.

My mom said when we lived in Israel if Kitniyot are good enough for the Sephardic Jews it's good enough for us!

Chava, I like how your mom thinks! In NYC the Sephardic Jewish population is growing, and we have a chain of restaurants called Hummus Kitchen that are kosher for Passover and serve kitniyot.

I had to look up "kitniyot". I never knew that there were any restrictions on legumes.

Learn something new here all the time.

MQ, just for taking the trouble to look up about kitniyot, you deserve an honorary Jewish name that is an anagram of your screen name.

Yemina Q. Gutheim
= I am Mightyqueen

Yemina (ימינה): Hebrew name meaning "right hand," signifying strength.

Gutheim (גוטהיים): Yiddish/Ashkenazic surname, meaning "from a good home."

OK, I've reached my decision....I'm doing kitniyot. But green beans only....rice strikes me as so WRONG.

I'm also trying to make things easier for myself this year. (Elderly parents require a lot of time and care.) I've bought paper plates - festively decorated for Passover - rather than bring up the Pesach dishes from the basement.

BUT....I have not given up on my annual pre-Pesach "deep clean" - including the professional carpet cleaners who will be arriving in an hour. It's so nice to kick off Pesach, and spring, with a throughly cleaned home.

Happy Pesach everyone! (My favorite holiday.....)
