Passover begins at sunset this Friday evening, and lasts for 8 nights. Some of you may have standing seder plans with family and/or friends, but others may be looking to celebrate Passover with a seder for the very first time.
There are a lot of great resources you’ll find on line. One site, which has information, recipes, crafts and more, is aish.com. Here is a quote from just one of many pages of Passover information on this site, which beautifully sums up the holiday, and also illustrates why this is a “go to” site for Jewish information:
“Passover conveys five major concepts that became our mantras for how to lead successful and productive lives. They are the five most important things to know about Passover, and to incorporate into every day of the rest of the year. Because we’ve absorbed them into our national psyche for the thousands of years since the Exodus, we’ve been privileged to fulfill in great measure our prophetically mandated role to become a light unto the nations.
They are our greatest contributions to the world and can be summarized in five words: memory, optimism, faith, family, and responsibility.”
A great way to get all the information you need is to get a Haggadah. Below are three sites where you can instantly acquire just what you need. For those of you who attended our FVJS Model Seder last Sunday, the Haggadah we used came from the first site in the list: www.30minuteseder.com. There is a small fee at this site, but it enables you to make as many copies as you need without copyright infringement.
Another helpful site is http://www.sidduraudio.com/pesach.html, where you can listen to clips of the Haggadah being recited in order to learn how to do it yourself.
Be creative and have fun this holiday season!Chag Sameach!
