Virtual Passover Box: Resources for Your Seder

Brought to you by Reconstructing Judaism and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association.§ 

Mah nishtana hashanah ha zot? (Why is this year any different?). We are used to the refrain from the traditional four questions asked at the seder, “Why is this night different from all other nights?” But at this moment in history, when we are staying indoors, practicing social distancing and trying to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, we will experience Passover this year as few of us ever have.

Whether you are joining an online seder, creating a small one with your household or simply looking for resources and innovations to enrich your experience, we are delighted to offer you this “Virtual Passover Box.” Here you will find several additions and suggestions for each step of the traditional Passover seder. Chag Sameakh! Happy holiday!

(Please note: you can find even more Passover resources at our Passover 2020 page.)
