Our Community Seder

Ritual elements you’ll need (it’s okay if you don’t have any of them too!):

  • Candles and matches
  • Wine and glasses
  • Seder plate: pesach (shank bone – may use a roasted beet instead), karpas (parsley), charoset, maror, hard-boiled egg, optional: lettuce or other bitter green. If you are unable to make your own Seder plate, we will have one on the screen for everyone.
  • Small bowl of salt water and green vegetable for dipping
  • Bowl or pitcher for hand washing and towels
  • Plate with 3 matzot
  • Elijah’s cup (filled with wine)
  • Miriam’s cup (filled with water)
  • Our Community Seder Haggadah (we recommend printing the haggadah beforehand to make it easier to follow along)

Counting the Omer

We are all deeply aware of the passage of each day at this time, as we are confining ourselves to our homes for health and safety.  And we are likely counting the days until we can emerge into a healthy world. Judaism has a built-in practice of counting at this time of year. This period is called the Omer, marking the journey from Pesach to Shavuot, from the emergence from slavery to a moment of freedom and communal responsibility. We are going to practice this counting each day together, these 49 days, so that together we might cultivate mindfulness and meaning in the completeness of each and every day.

We will mark and count the Omer together with a 5-7 minute virtual gathering beginning on Thursday April 9th at 6:00 pm.

Our counting will continue nightly at 6:00 pm, with the exceptions of Shabbat evening (Friday) and Havdalah (Saturday) when we will incorporate the counting into our worship experiences.
