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, after two years of pandemic life and loss, when the gates to the outer world are creaking open with life and hope, we will experience Passover this year as few of us ever have.
Whether you are joining an online seder, creating an in-person seder with loved ones 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, including youth and family activities from Havaya Summer Programs. Chag Sameakh! Happy holiday!
