Dear Friends,

Passover is traditionally spent with family and friends, a celebration of the Divine gift of Jewish survival and community. But with corona virus curtailing travel plans and social interactions, many are facing the prospect of celebrating Passover alone.

We are here to help!

To this end we will be providing the following resources:

1: Seder In a Box: Order a Seder to go, from Matzah to Brisket and everything in-between!

2: DIY Seder Guide: An printable step by step guide to leading your seder.

3: Seder 101: A two part online series  titled "Becoming a Seder Pro" 

As always - and especially now - I am available for you and your family in whatever way you need. Please don't hesitate to reach out!

Sincerely,

Rabbi Avraham Kagan

Sell Your Chametz
 

Use this online form to sell your chametz for Pesach.

Any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Pesach and also to buy it back the evening after Pesach ends. Use this online form to quickly delegate a rabbi to sell your chametz for you.

\"All who are hungry, let them come and eat.\" We must ensure that our brothers and sisters have the means to celebrate freedom too.

Most of the people who are hungry will not be standing in our dining rooms as we begin our Seder, waiting for the invitation. As such, in preparation for the Passover holiday, it is age-old Jewish tradition to contribute generously towards funds that ensure that indeed everyone who is in need has the necessary provisions for the holiday—food, matzah, wine, festive clothing, etc.

Order Matzah
 
Traditional handmade shmurah matzah is recommended for seder use.

Shmurah means watched, and it is an apt description of this matzah, the ingredients of which (the flour and water) are watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing.

Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to use Shmurah Matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate.

DIY Seder Guide 
 

 

Leading your own seder is a lot simpler than it seems. Why? Because you have your cheat sheet right in front of you. A standard Haggadah has all the instructions and guidance necessary to walk through the 15 steps of the Seder like a pro. So just pull out your haggadah and read through it in advance.

Want to have some witty and wise thoughts to share with your (truncated) crowd of participants? Start with a treasury of Seder insights.

Here is what you’ll need for the Seder:

  • Haggadah booklets
  • Matzah (handmade shmurah matzah is ideal)
  • Wine or grape juice
  • Marror (bitter herbs, typically romaine lettuce and grated horseradish)
  • Vegetable for dipping
  • Saltwater (yep, just salt and water)
  • Food for your Passover feast (make sure its kosher for Passover and does not contain roast meat)
  • Roasted bone (Chabad custom is a chicken neck, which may be easier to procure than a lamb shank)
  • Charoset
  • Eggs
  • Cutlery (either disposable or kosher for Passover)
