Community Passover Seder

***UPDATE 3/16/2020: We have decided to cancel our Community Passover Seder scheduled for April 9 due to COVID-19. The health of all of the Salt Lake Community is our priority.  Passover celebrates liberation. The Seder dinner is a central part of the weekly Passover traditions; It is truly a loss when one is unable to join with family, friends and the community to eat, sing and tell the story of Israel’s deliverance from slavery in Egypt.

We would like to give you some ideas on how to hold your own Passover Seder at home. During this time of extreme caution, please keep in mind the recommendations put forth by the Utah Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control when thinking about inviting people into your home.

Ideas for holding a Seder at home:

  • Create a Seder plate and talk about the significant items and what they represent.
  • Read from the Haggadah and allow this book to serve as a guide and script for the Seder.
  • Sing songs about Passover
  • Drink wine and/or grape juice!
  • Experiment with a new Passover recipe

A simple and helpful website we love is My Jewish Learning

A new program designed to promote inclusion and decrease anti-Semitism through the Passover Seder is called 2 For Seder. They are hosting a webinar on how to hold a virtual Seder on Tuesday, March 31 - Head over to their website to learn more!
