TOL Community Seder - First Night, Saturday, March 27, 2021, 5:30 PM   

This special Seder is designed to be condensed, family-friendly, and should take about an hour and 15 minutes... after which we can all recline and enjoy dinner in our own homes. Please prepare your own seder plates and four cups and have your Haggadah ready. We will meet on Zoom to re-imagine the story of our ancestors’ exodus and liberation through readings and song, questions, and more questions.

Register here for the Zoom link. 

We will use the New Union Haggadah by Bronstein/Baskin. 

You can pick up copies of the Haggadah and a box of matzah at the synagogue March 23-26.
After the holiday, please make sure you return the books to the synagogue. 
Alternatively, you can use this PDF file of the Haggadah.

Host a Virtual Seder

Haggadah: The seder is a collaborative experience! Assign everyone different parts of the seder to lead from whatever Haggadah or source (poem, song, video clip) they prefer, and however creatively they wish.

 

Seder Plate: Have each person/family pick an item on the seder plate and share what it means to them or a favorite memory about it.  

Afikoman: Each participating household hides their own afikoman. Via Zoom (FaceTime/Skype) the others have to direct you to look in different places in your own home until they figure out where it’s hidden.

Passover with Kids 

For Children and Families : Crafts, cooking, music, books - anything and everything families with children can do during the holiday, curated by a Reform rabbi and a Jewish educator. Keep the kids entertained and have them create something special for your seder table with these Passover Crafts.
