SEDER

B'NAI ZION WILL NOT HOLD A CONGREGATION SEDER 2020/5780 DUE TO CONCERNS ABOUT COVID-19.

IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE WITH HOSTING OR ATTENDING A SEDER AT HOME, PLEASE CONTACT RABBI JANA.

For more information about Passover, including our family-friendly  Haggadah, 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.

 

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.

YIZKOR / MEMORIAL SERVICE

The last day of Passover B'nai Zion will have a service that includes Yizkor. For more details about the Last Day of Passover, click HERE. 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. Contact Rabbi Jana if you want to ensure that the names of your loved ones are included.
