Craft Ideas, Recipes, Music Videos, Podcasts, Cooking Videos, and more to help your family celebrate together or apart.

Passover (‘Pesach’ in Hebrew) comes in the springtime and is among the most celebrated of Jewish holidays. This year Passover begins on the evening of Saturday, March 27 and ends the evening of Sunday, April 4. Many families will hold a seder (ritual dinner) on the first and/or second night of the holiday and use the symbolic objects on the seder plate to tell the biblical story of the Exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in the land of Egypt. The story of Moses, Pharaoh and the 10 plagues may be told through prayers, blessings, songs, questions, role-playing and symbolic foods, following the order laid out in the Haggadah (guide to the seder). In remembrance of the hurried exit from Egypt, which left no time for bread to rise, many families will eat matzah  (unleavened bread), prepare special foods and refrain from eating chametz  (foods made with a leavening agent) throughout the days of the holiday 

Whatever this Passover looks like for your family, we hope the craft ideas, recipes, music and cooking videos, and other resources provided in this Holiday Hub will enrich your family’s celebrations, whether you are together or apart.
