A virtual Passover Haggadah from Rabbi Zoë Klein Miles
Build your own Passover PowerPoint using this resource from our staff and clergy.
Our ancestors were instructed to explain the meaning of Passover to their children, a tradition that has continued in every generation through joyous seders attended by multiple generations of family and friends.
This year, our Passover celebrations may look and feel a little (or a lot!) different. We may be having “zeders” (zoom-seders) instead of seders. Here is a collection of alternatives that will allow us to observe this holiday as fully as possible in these unprecedented times.
The people who should be at your seder table are those who already share your living space with you. Large family gatherings and community seders should not take place this year. We understand that this is heartbreaking and will be a significant disruption for many in our community.
However, those over the age of 65 or with compromised immune systems have an increased risk of death from COVID-19. We cannot emphasize enough that our community must prioritize health over family celebrations for the duration of this crisis, even if that means being without loved ones at your seder.
There are many wonderful ways to celebrate Passover, even as we limit human contact. To paraphrase the Talmud: (Yoma 85b)
Still craving connection? How about hosting a “zeder” instead of a seder? Free video conferencing apps like , , and can help your family have a seder together even when you are not in the same house. Smaller tables allow you to be more creative and try something that may not have worked with a long-standing family tradition.
Whether it's your first time, you are limited because of self-isolation, these creative lists (like rolls from toilet paper or paper towels with tissue paper inserted at the top) compiled by Washington Hebrew Congregation can help.
