Passover is a time to create memories and celebrate traditions. This year, we are providing resources to help with your own family seder, and to assist you in preparing your family to be “together” during this time of physical separation: three seders, two cooking classes for your family to participate in with our congregation, tips for a successful virtual seder, online haggadah options, and catering menus from local vendors.
Here are some tips to help you create a memorable seder:
Have each be responsible for presenting a plague, or draw what freedom means to them.
Have them draw/write how are they oppressed and what would they do to get rid of that oppression, or make a playlist of songs to represent the 4 children of the seder (Learn about the 4 children here).
Hide the Afikomen
Sneak the Afikomen in a word search, or a “Where’s Waldo” type hunt.
