Passover

SEDER

B'NAI ZION WILL NOT HOLD IN-PERSON CONGREGATION SEDERS DURING THE PANDEMIC. 

Rabbi Jana held a First Night Seder on Zoom that was attended by congregants, family, and new and old friends.

For more information about Passover, including our family-friendly  Haggadah Book (for printing), Slide Show Haggadah (great for Zoom), videos, Afikoman prizes, learning the Hebrew songs and more, go to this Passover page.


SELL CHAMETZ

Rabbi Jana will sell all of your chametz (also spelled 'hametz') whether it is in your home, office, or vehicles. Use the online Sale of Chametz form and pay online, or get the  printable form to the office. Traditionally a donation is made to B'nai Zion to sell your chametz. The donation will be used to offset the costs of helping people during Passover. Click here for the form to sell chametz.


RED RIVER RADIO PASSOVER PROGRAMS

 

There are wonderful radio shows about Passover that Red River Radio makes available to us.
Go to the station's website to listen, or listen on the radio or HD radio.

COUNT THE OMER

Beginning the second night of Passover we count the Omer - seven times seven weeks = 49 days until Shavuot. Two of Rabbi Jana's favorite Omer counters are:

 

Count the Omer with Hillel Smith's animated artwork. (Cool designs that blend the Hebrew letter with the number it represents.)

 


Count the Omer with Homer Simpson (D'oh - way better than you think - a great source of Omer information, and even some details about what's Jewish with the Simpsons.) 

 

*Note that these sites "reset" for the second night of Passover. If you go to them during the rest of the year, the count will show completed, because it is from last year.

PASSOVER AND YIZKOR / MEMORIAL SERVICES
 

The first day of Passover we will have a service in the morning. We plan to offer the service in person and online. There is a YouTube video (from 2020) that can be viewed HERE.

The last Shabbat Evening and the last day of Passover B'nai Zion will have a service that includes Yizkor. We plan to offer these services in person and online.

The current Memorial / Yizkor Book was used beginning Yom Kippur this year. It can be found HERE.

During the service we will read all of the names of people who have died during this Jewish year who are connected to our  B'nai Zion family. The current year Yizkor list is HERE

Contact Rabbi Jana if you want the names of your loved ones to be added to the list of those who died this year.
