MJRC ruling: Eating kitniyot on Passover only Sephardic thing Messianic Jews allowed to do


The Messianic Jewish Rabbinical Council announced on Wednesday that they have updated their Standards of Halachic Observance. The standards now permit Messianic Jews to eat kitniyot, a category that includes legumes and similar items prohibited by Ashkenazi Jews but allowed by Sephardic Jews.

The previous standards endorsed by the council strictly forbid Messianic Jews from any Sephardic practices whatsoever, on the grounds that all Messianic Jews are Americans of Ashkenazi descent.
