Happy Passover.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jewish families are cutting back their primary holiday of the year. At sundown tonight, Jewish people traditionally gather at a table with friends, relatives and even strangers for a celebration highlighted by a Seder dinner. The evening begins an eight-day holiday that commemorates God’s “passing over” of a plague more than 3.000 years ago. This year, there are virtual synagogue services, Zoom Seder gatherings, first-time cooks for a meal that may not be a five-course extravaganza. Stores are well-stocked with matzoh, the unleavened bread that’s a must-have. No matter what your faith or tradition, we can all celebrate the freedoms that will return with this modern coronavirus plague passes. Social Distance; Stay Home: Wash your Hands. (even on Passover)
