A Torah True History of Quinoa on Passover

A guest post by Azigra

· Quinoa is domesticated for human consumption in South America [1]

· It is used primarily by native South American societies [2]

· Quinoa remained largely unknown in Europe and No. America until recently [3]

· The custom to refrain from consuming Kitniyos begins in the 15th Century [4]

· Quinoa becomes a popular food in the 1970s as people look for healthy foods [5]

· Jews question the halachic status of Quinoa on Pesach as kitniyos [6]

· R. Moshe Feinstein permits the consumption of Quinoa on Pesach [7]

· The Eida HaCharedis prohibits the consumption of Quinoa on Pesach [8]

· Jews remain divided on Quinoa’s halachic status

· Rabbis place bans on quinoa in Jewish weekly’s stating that quinoa production has changed since the Igros Moshe was published

· Hotels advertise their kitchen as glatt kosher and quinoa free

· Jews choose hotels based on the shechita and quinoa use of the caterer

· Non-Haimish Jews who stay home for Pesach burn their Quinoa

· Shidduchim are broken based on gebrochts and quinoa

· Most Jews do not consume Quinoa on Pesach, it is only the more modern elements that still pretend it’s permissible

· It is assur gamur to consume Quinoa on Pesach

· Jews who eat Quinoa on Pesach are chayiv Kares and are basically seeking to destroy Judaism as it has been know since the times of the Tanaim, Amoraim, and Achronim, who all knew that quinoa was assur and didn’t eat it on Pesach

Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm planning
to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Hello there just stumbled upon your blog from Bing after I typed in, "Blogger: DOVBEAR"
or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). In any case, I'm happy
I found it simply because your content is exactly what I'm looking for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't mind if I gather some material from here and I will of course credit you as the reference.

Thank you so much.

Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if
you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can
advise? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Hello. I was considering adding a link back to your blog
since both of our web sites are based mostly
around the same niche. Would you prefer I link to you using your site address:
http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=8861063&postID=2101376222589196565 or blog
title: Blogger: DOVBEAR. Be sure to let me know at your earliest convenience.

Hey! I could have sworn I've been to this blog before but after reading through some of the post I realized it's new to me.
Anyways, I'm definitely happy I found it and I'll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

Browsing digg.com I noticed your website bookmarked
as: Blogger: DOVBEAR. Now I am assuming you book marked
it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you a ton of visitors?

I've been thinking of doing some social bookmarking for a few of my sites but wasn't certain
if it would generate any positive results. Thank you.
