Virtual Community Seder
Thursday, April 9th, 5:45 -7:15 pm
Hill Havurah’s Community Seder is going virtual (via Zoom). We’ll use our community’s own haggadah for an intergenerational experience, and we’ll open up the floor for participants who registered in advance to take the lead in certain areas. Times are weird, and if all you’ve got is the Hill Havurah digital haggadah and a heart ready for liberation, that's just fine. But if you’re collecting your own supplies, here is a suggested list
  • Seder plate with zeroa (shankbone or dogbone or beet), maror (horseradish or lettuce), karpas (parsely), beitzah (egg), charoset (apple/nut/wine mix, or something else that’s sweet and reminiscent of mortar), small bowl of saltwater, orange/clementine.
  • A pair of candles (and something to light with).
  • A cup for wine/grape juice for each member of the household.
  • A cup for Elijah (with wine/grape juice) and another cup for Miriam (with water).
  • Three pieces of matzah (with cloth to cover them and wrap the afikoman matzah in).Prize for the afikoman (to give to a household member or yourself -- you deserve it!).
  • Pillow for your chair if it helps you recline.
  • Something yummy and unleavened for dinner -- dinner will come after the official end time of the seder, though if people want to keep talking on Zoom as they dine, they’re welcome to do so!
