How to Host a Seder & More

Just like Passover 2020, this year for Passover we may have to recreate our own charoset made of fruits and nuts our parents and grandparents never contemplated using. We will probably find horseradish and purchase matzah, but we may still have to lead our own seder and not join our relatives or friends.

Still social distancing this Passover season, we may still be looking for items for our Seder dinner(s), so consider being innovative. Over the centuries, different Jewish communities made the food their own while maintaining the symbolism which “told” the Exodus story. The many different charoset recipes reflect the foods available to each Jewish community.

Think ahead and check with your rabbi, cantor and/or religious leader for resources, stores and food substitutions. Let the story of the Exodus be the “centerpiece” at your Seder. 

And we hope you use the links below to help you prepare for this year's Seder and beyond!
