Why is this Passover different from all others? For one thing, you will most certainly not be hosting your usual crowd this year or traveling out of town to be a guest. But no matter how reduced in size your seder table may be, Passover is still coming — we’ll just experience it differently.
Rabbis and medical professionals in our community are unified in their insistence that we protect ourselves, our families, and our communities by maintaining social distancing, not inviting guests for Shabbat or for upcoming Passover seders. Some orthodox rabbis (not all) have endorsed conducting seders via Zoom and Facebook Live. Here are some of the more interesting solutions, adaptations and workarounds popping up locally and nationally about how to celebrate Passover 2020, literally in the midst of a plague.
The Jewish people have been adapting to changing circumstances for over 5,000 years. In the midst of COVID-19 and physical distancing, we need new ways to come together. Post or attend an online aeder, find featured haggadot to download, and technical support to organize your family, friends, community all in one place.
