Celebrate Passover During Coronavirus

As Jewish people around the world prepare for Passover under the pale of Coronavirus, we are faced with a host of new challenges and questions. How to prepare with minimal ingredients and limited access to communal resources? How to celebrate the Seder alone? How will we celebrate the Festival of Freedom with our movement restricted? Find answers to all this and more...

Seder To Go
Sell Chametz
Buy Matzah
What is Pesach?
The eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nissan. Passover (Pesach) commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. Pesach is observed by avoiding leaven, and highlighted by the Seder meals that include four cups of wine, eating matzah and bitter herbs, and retelling the story of the Exodus
Pesach Times
The absolute deadline for eating chametz is the morning before Passover, it is forbidden to eat chametz until the close of the festival in eight days.
By this time, the chametz should be burned, and there should be no chametz remaining in your possession.

 Due to the coronavirus outbreak, our synagogue remains closed. We highly encourage you to try and make a Passover celebration in your own home. We hope the resources here will help guide you.
