Rabbi Kanievsky Blesses Cannabis – Happy Passover!
Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, who is considered the leading living Orthodox rabbi, has ruled that marijuana is kosher for Passover.
As a frequent Cannabis user for my entire adult life and being raised Jewish (Bar Mitzvahed and all) by a single father from Brooklyn in Southern California who only saw family during Jewish holidays this is a moment to be celebrated. I can be pretty high energy at times (no pun intended) and as a youth this was a problem that landed me climbing the walls in several Psychiatrist sessions. In the end, the only thing that ever really balanced me out was weed.
I don’t know if i can just break out the bong at Passover dinner this year but it’s ‘Bashert‘ that i can.
Israel Medical Cannabis company ‘ dialogue ‘ turned to Rabbi Kanevsky, and asked him and Rabbi Yitzhak Zilberstein to address their issues, and they did.
Watch the examination and blessing conducted by Rabbi Kanievsky and Rabbi Silberstein.
