Passover 2020 – Virtual Seder Info


Thursday, April 9, beginning at 6 pm

Dear Temple Beth Or Family, 

“Let all who are hungry come and eat, let all in need come and partake of our Passover celebration.” We share these words around our Seder table each year, but this year, with social distancing, they must take on a new form. 

My immediate family is looking forward to hosting you for Seder on the second night of Passover, Thursday, April 9, beginning at 6 pm. Please extend this Seder invitation to your friends and family, anyone you know whose spirit could use uplift through the themes of our Seder. 

Below are a list of resources to support your Seder experience AND what’s most important to remember this year is to enjoy Passover from the comfort of your home and do not stress the details. Our Seder is appropriate for all ages and will include traditional and creative elements. It will last about an hour and you may feel free to nosh throughout.

Login information for the Zoom meeting was sent out to members via ORbits email.

You do not need an account or a special app to participate on Zoom. Simply click on the link from your computer, smartphone, or tablet – or use any phone to dial into the meeting and enter Meeting ID. You only need to enter the meeting ID if you call in, and you do not need a password.  In addition to Zoom, I will Live Stream the Seder on Facebook for folks who prefer that platform.
