VIRTUAL – 2nd Night Community Passover Seder 5780
Thursday, April 9 | 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Rabbi Eve Posen for a virtual, interactive, all ages 2nd night Seder using Zoom.
The seder has long been one of my favorite Jewish rituals. It tells a story, it’s interactive, engaging, multigenerational and so sensory. And this can still be true even when we can’t be together physically. We’ll use the Zoom platform to interact with each other, tell the story, sing, play games and more.
What you’ll need:
- A computer, tablet, smartphone or another device that lets you see Rabbi Posen as she leads. Much of this seder will be interactive and visual.
- A Haggdah. We’ll be using the PJ Library “In Every Generation Haggadah” which is available for free download here, https://pjlibrary.org/haggadah , and we’ll also be screen sharing it with you as well to follow along. Feel free to also use your own Haggadah.
- Seder ritual items: Seder plate with charoset, green vegetable, egg, shankbone (or substitute), bitter herb, salt water, 4 cups of wine or grape juice, matzah and anything else you might put on your seder plate like an orange, etc.
- A Smile
What to Expect:
This seder is planned to be interactive using trivia quizzes through zoom, the chat sidebar function, breakout small groups, communal singing and communal participation (more on that homework below). We will follow the Haggadah, tell the story, sing the songs, ask the questions, eat dinner, and interact.
How to Prepare:
Rabbi Eve has a few moments where she’ll ask you to share. To make this visually stimulating here are a few ways you can prepare ahead of time (so you won’t have to write or create during the seder):
- Illustrate the plagues. When we get to this point of the seder you’ll be asked to hold up these illustrations so we can see some visual representations
- Dayeinu: when we sing dayeinu, it would have been enough it is a great time to reflect on the gifts you’ve received in the past year. Please write a few of them on a piece of paper to share so we have an entire screen filled with gratitude.
- Take a deep breath. This will be different from all other seders, and yet familiar at the same time. Breathe, be present.

Looking forward to walking out of our narrow place, Mitzrayim together and into the expanse of community.
