Virtual Passover Seder

April 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Virtual Passover Seder

With Rev. DeeAnn Weir Morency
Wednesday, April 8th
6:00 PM

Join Rev. DeeAnn for an evening celebration of this traditional Jewish ritual. All are welcome, and the ritual aspects will be accessible to everyone. As for dinner, it’s entirely your choice – no Jewish cooking necessary!

If you are joining us from a later time zone, please eat before joining the call.

A message from Rev. DeeAnn

Passover is my favorite holiday, and during a Seder, we are celebrating our ancestors’ journey to freedom, as well as activating our own movement from bondage to freedom.  It is an intimate evening filled with storytelling, introspection, song, and ritual.

Here is what will support our journey together:

During the Seder

You must have your video on throughout the Zoom call during the Seder – it enables much more connection and interaction.  Please be sure that your sound is also working before we start at 6:00 PM.  If you need any support with this, please reach out to the office and our staff will assist you.

I will ask that we all mute our microphones unless we are speaking so that there is no ambient noise in the background.

The Haggadah

Please download the Haggadah (which will guide us through the evening) by using the link above and print it out beforehand so that you are ready to participate! 

Ritual Items

Other “props” that will support your participation if you are not familiar with preparing the more traditional Passover foods:

  • Wine, juice, or something yummy to drink that says “special evening”
  • A candle, and something to light it
  • A small bowl of water and a towel (to symbolically wash our hands)
  • A small bowl of salt water
  • Some sort of edible green – parsley, salad greens
  • A hard boiled egg (If you don’t eat eggs, no worries – substitute with something else!)
  • Matzo or crackers
  • An apple and/or some nuts
  • Horseradish, or if you don’t have it, you can use celery or endive (a bitter green)
  • Whatever you wish to eat for dinner

None of this is obligatory, so please don’t stress if getting to the store is challenging right now!

Please email me with any questions at revdeeann@unitysf.com.  I look forward to seeing everyone on April 8th!
