Save the beans, save yourself—free the kitniyot!


They call themselves the Kitniyot Liberation Front on Facebook, and they are fighting for beans.

Name: Kitniyot Liberation Front
Type: Common Interest - Religion & Spirituality
Description: To all eaters of kitniyot during Pesach, and to all who believe that kitniyot are not forbidden and can not be - the Kitniyot Liberation Front has come to Facebook!
Email: kitniyot@yahoo.com

I’m all for it, as I find that turning Sephardi every Pesach is alarming my family, which has been Ashkenazi since always.

Moral of the story: When you’re building a wall around the Torah, make sure you don’t wall ordinary Jews out.
