All the Information You Need to Celebrate Pesach this Year!

In this season, where everything is constantly changing, our seders are going to be changing too.  Beth Jacob will be hosting a virtual community seder for the first night; we will also be arranging online seder groups for the second night. Whether or not you join a BJC seder, feel free to use these online haggadot: The Rabbinical Assembly’s ‘Feast of Freedom’, The Shalom Hartman Institute’s ‘A Different Night’, and PJ Library’s ‘In Every Generation’.
