What is a Seder?
One of the most celebrated Jewish rituals is the Passover seder. In the seder, Jews read from a Haggadah and tell the story of the Exodus. It is considered a mitzvah to tell the story to our children and pass on the tradition. The seder contains questions and answers, songs, stories, and symbolization. During the seder, the foods on the seder plate symbolize the parts of the story of the Exodus.
Also, if you can’t find Kosher for Passover food or don’t have a Kosher grocery store near, then remember Amazon has lots of deals on Kosher for Passover food for your short seder. Since many of the Passover foods have free Prime shipping you can get them in just a couple of days. In addition, by making your own you own food, you can have Passover on a budget.
Passover 2020 starts in the evening (sundown) of Wednesday, April 8 and the evening of Thursday, April 16. For Reform Jews, Passover lasts for 7 days. Orthodox, Hasidic, and most Conservative Jews celebrate Passover for eight days.
