How is this Passover different than last Passover?


From Shabbat’s infectious joy to Our Tent’s deep examination of Tikkun Olam, we found new ways to grow closer as a community.

From word clouds on the High Holy Days to thought-provoking conversations about Unorthodox, we found new ways to engage.

From making sacred spaces at home to accessing sacred music for our families, we found new ways to create meaning

From learning new technologies to adapting to a new rhythm, we found new ways to manage the seemingly unmanageable.

We’ve come so far, learned so much. This Passover will continue that journey.

As you scroll down, you’ll see five types of programs and resources …
