Celebrate Passover During Coronavirus

As Jewish people around the world prepare for Passover under the pale of Coronavirus, we are faced with a host of new challenges and questions. How to prepare with minimal ingredients and limited access to communal resources? How to celebrate the Seder alone? How will we celebrate the Festival of Freedom with our movement restricted? Find answers to all this and more...

Seder To Go Kits

This year celebrate Passover with family, relive the exodus, discover the eternal meaning of the Haggadah, and enjoy a Seder to remember with hand-baked Shmurah Matzah, wine, and a wonderful dinner spiced with unique traditional customs.

 
What is Pesach?
The eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nissan. Passover (Pesach) commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. Pesach is observed by avoiding leaven, and highlighted by the Seder meals that include four cups of wine, eating matzah and bitter herbs, and retelling the story of the Exodus

Help Others Celebrate Passover

In preparation for the Passover holiday it is a Jewish tradition to contribute generously towards funds that ensure that everyone who is in need has the necessary provisions for the holiday. Due to the Covid19 outbreak and its economic ramifications, the need is greater this year than ever before.
