First Crack at a Pizza Slice

After concluding davening at 770 Eastern Parkway, some rushed to grab a bite of chametz from Benny's Pizza in Crown Heights.

Some how I am uncomfortable....
Between the connection to pizza!!!! I would imagine you would write that the farbrengen was so beautiful and lasted one and a half hours after pesach, people were in no rush for pizza!!! How about that mother's and children came too! Thank you

After working so hard a whole yomtov to avoid chometz, why would we rush to stuff ourselves with pizza?

Agree with number one
You couldn't find a better title for your article ?

The atmosphere at the farbrengen was so beautiful and energizing -
Trust me, the majority of men , women and children who attended - were not running to pizza

true chassideshe yidden
I am astounded by the beautiful qualities which the crown heights baalei batim and bochurim express here. We see that they truly undersood and derhered the hasiddic teachings of “iscafia”. This wonderful occurrence brought tears to my eyes. We are really in Mashiach tzeiten.

Interesting to note
There's a sicha of the rebbe(Chelek chaf beis of I'm not mistaken) where the rebbe discusses/explains why we eat gebroks on acharon shel pesach,more than the simple reason why but also according to chassidus. In short what the rebbe explained there was that in essence chametz isn't bad, on the contrary, it's really greater than matzoh, rather only it needs to be elevated. And that's the avoda of sfiras haomer.(that's BTW the reason why the omer offering has to be chametz) now after a week of refining ourselves and the main midda we could start having some aspect of chametz which that is gebroks. So what I'm trying to lead to is that this that they're running after chametz right after pesach, they're showing how the whole point of pesach is to elevate the chametz, not abandon it.

Italy has the best pizza ever!!!!! why would you go to pizza stores in crown heights they don't know how to make their pizza. They make it with a thin crust and waaay to much sauce. Italian pizza is waaay better. Enjoy your pizza anyway although you are missing out on a lot. ciao!
