Free Zoom 2nd Night Community Passover Seder

Break matzah, drink wine, and eat Karpas, Maror, and Charoset together with your friends at Ahavas Sholom for our second annual Free Zoom 1st and 2nd Night Community Passover Seders.

We don’t have to be spiritually distant as we socially distance ourselves from Covid-19.

Join us online on Sunday, March  28th at 8 pm, for the 2nd Night Community Passover Seder, as we contemplate and celebrate our liberation from slavery and the Exodus from Egypt.

To prepare for the Seder, if you can, gather the following items together.

2. Wine or grape juice

3. A bowl of salt water

4. A Seder plate — The objects on the Seder plate include:

  1. A roasted egg
  2. Maror (Bitter Herbs): Horseradish and/or Romain lettuce
  3. Charoset (mixture of fruit and nuts): Common recipe — a mixture of chopped apple, chopped walnuts, honey, and wine. Represents the mortar the Israelites used in making bricks
  4. Karpas (Spring Vegetable): parsley, celery, boiled potato, or raw onion
  5. Zeroa (Shank bone) a bone representing the sacrifice we made on Passover when the Temple still stood. Some vegetarians use a beet) 

If you can’t get these items, don’t worry, Simon, who will be leading the Seder, will have them, and will be using them ceremonially in the Seder.
