Before Passover:

Virtual Sale of Chametz (leavened products)

Even in a "normal" Passover year, when we aren't doing things virtually, Jews conduct a "virtual sale" of all their leavened products (chametz) for the duration of the Passover holiday.


If you would like to give Rabbi Jack permission to sell the ownership of your chametz for Passover to a non-Jew, please fill out this form with your NAME AND ADDRESS by Monday, April 6th.


Please note that the food stays in your possession, just the legal ownership changes.

Your Seder Table

Whether you'll be joining the virtual Community Seder, or making your own family seder, here's a list of items for a traditional seder table:

  • a seder plate (or designated plate)

  • wine or grape juice and a cup for each participant

  • a plate with three matzahs

  • napkin or something in which to place the afikomen

  • Elijah's cup (extra wine cup)

  • a bowl with salt water

  • parsley or other vegetable for dipping

  • roasted egg (boiled and then slightly burnt on the stovetop)

  • shank bone (or roasted beet, or paper cut-out or drawing of a shank bone)

  • charoset (recipes available online, often a mixture of apples, walnuts and wine)

  • bitter herb (horseradish or bitter lettuce);

  • Optional, but fun for the kids at the community seder: scallions/green onions

  • food/dinner for the festive meal


Remember that we light candles at the start of the holiday, so you'll want your "shabbat" candles on hand.


For Passover Seder 2020, we are acutely aware that "this night is different than all other nights." Please don't stress if you're unable to set your table with all the traditional items this year. Be creative--construction paper or a print-out from the web or a drawing works fine, too.
