At a time when people are feeling isolated and in need of meaningful connection, OneTable, which empowers people to envision new rituals and build community through Shabbat dinner experiences, is helping boost the Passover seder.

To that end, it is supporting people of all ages interested in hosting or attending virtual, household-based or outdoor socially distanced Passover gatherings.

This year, the holiday begins after sundown on March 27, after Shabbat, and lasts through Sunday, April 4.

“Passover is such a communal holiday experience filled with meaning and memories,” says Al Rosenberg, chief strategy officer of OneTable. “We learned a lot last year about the ways people can be creative and adapt rituals to make meaning in these times of distance. People may not gather together this year, but we can help create those personal connections and interactions that make Passover special, memorable and resonant today.”

Passover resources include guides to group and solo Shabbat seders; Haggadot (prayer guides); recipesplaylists; and inspiration boards

“To move half the country away from my family and friends, to start to build a community for ourselves from scratch, it hasn’t always been easy or fun,” says Eli Cohn-Wein, who hosted a Seder with the support of OneTable in 2020. “But as I looked over our seder table to see friends new and old, I felt nothing but unyielding gratitude for all of these people in this community. … During a holiday that commands us to study our history and act to improve our future, I can’t help but see where we’ve been and feel incredibly excited about where we are heading.”
