Hello from a very quiet Washington, D.C.!
You are cordially invited to a very special Passover Seder. The “social” will be distanced, but the love will be front and center. Wednesday, April 8, 2020, 7:00pm EST, 6:00pm CST, 5:00pm MST, 4:0pm PST. Let’s estimate shmoozing for the first 15 min, service for the next half hour, and meal starting thereafter.
We will be using Zoom. I have used Zoom one time, so I’m pretty much an expert. With that, I will have Owen Jacobs tutor me on Zoom and will report back. UPDATE: PRACTICE RUN will be Friday, April 3, 7:00pm EST, 6:00pm CST, 5:00pm MST, 4:0pm PST. Here is the link: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/6893226435
No RSVPs necessary (Joe Beck, you’re in luck!), but please feel free to RSVP if you would like so we can get excited to see you.
You can download the Hagaddah we will use here: Passover Haggadah 2020.
Here is what to put on a Seder Plate: Matza, Roasted Egg, Lamb Bone (or roasted red beet), Haroset, Horseradish, Parsley. Note, Helen and Lorin will have one, and will hold up the items, if you are not able to put one together.
Now for the Menu! … Provided the rations are available. I will be making these, and encourage you to make them too, if you can, so it’s even more like we are all together. You can download a word document Shopping List here: Passover 2020 Shopping List (you can add and delete items as needed, depending on what you will make and what you have). However, if you are not up for making all (or any) of the traditional dishes, this is a great article that talks about cooking for Passover during the pandemic.
- Ga’s Haroset (recipe provided soon)
- Dad’s Horseradish (recipe provided soon)
- Matza Ball Soup (recipe provided soon)
- Mom’s Brisket
- Ga’s Matza Lasagna
- White Cookies (a/k/a Ga’s Meringues) (recipe provided soon)
We are planning some pre-Passover Zoom sessions to teach you how to make the classic family dishes. Please stay tuned for that.
David Brown is hard at work selecting the songs we will sing, so be sure to ask him about it.
“See” you on the 8th!
