Are you Passover-curious, “zedering” or perhaps don’t even know where to even begin for Seder this year? In uncertain times such as these, we tend to crave tradition (or matzo ball soup) the most. We have put together some resources to see you through what is sure to be the most unusual Pesach yet. Next year, together. Chag sameach!
What is Passover?
Passover (Pesach in Hebrew) is a major Jewish spring holiday, that begins at sundown on the 15th day of Nisan (in the Hebrew calendar) celebrating freedom and family as we remember the Exodus from Egypt. The main observances of this holiday are the Seder (meaning “order”), which includes a festive meal; the prohibition on eating chametz (food made with leavened grains); and the eating of matzah (unleavened bread made especially for Passover).
Passover is celebrated for either seven or eight days, depending on family and communal customs.
