“Passover this year will be unlike any other. As we sit down at the Seder on Wednesday, April 8, many of us will celebrate the holiday alone, with only those in our immediate household or perhaps virtually with our families.

As we look for creative ways to adapt to the changing landscape, here are four questions to consider:

“Why is this night different from all other nights?”

  1. On this night, what does it mean to face uncertainty? How have we as a people responded in the past? How will we respond today?
  2. On this night, how do we reach the stranger in a time of social distancing?
  3. On this night, how do we celebrate our freedom and how do we help those who are not yet free? – What does freedom mean during self-quarantine or shelter-in-place?
  4. On this night, how do we show gratitude for our faith, family, and the everlasting bond of the Jewish people?”

Incorporating additional Jewish learning opportunities or crafts for all ages into your Seder, sampling interesting recipes and helping your community with your time and resources are all ways that we can feel especially connected this Passover.
