“In each and every generation we must view ourselves as if we have personally come out of Egypt.” (Exodus 13:8)
When most of us began planning our 2020 Sedarim, we had no idea that we would be socially distancing from our family, friends and community. The language of plagues felt antiquated and the thought of being trapped anywhere was almost unthinkable. So much has changed in just a few weeks. Now, we are all too aware that, next Wednesday, it will not be difficult to answer: ‘why is this night different from all other nights?’
Our tradition teaches us that the liberation of our ancestors was only possible because of signs and wonders. Our modern signs and wonders now come via the internet. Through the miracles of Zoom and our livestream we are delighted to bring you WLS Seder LIVE to your home.
We have a brand-new, intergenerational, virtual Haggadah, we have virtual rabbis in our homes, a virtual Maya with her beautiful voice, and all the virtual trimmings of a traditional communal Seder. From the comfort of your own Seder table, you can connect with your loved ones, and hundreds of other families across our community and beyond.
If you’d like to join our Seder LIVE please email: email@example.com
We will send you the instructions for how to access the Seder, including a password protected weblink. The email will include a copy of the Haggadah and a list of items with which to prepare your table. WLS Seder LIVE is open to members and non-members, so please feel free to invite anyone you would like to spend Seder night with. Together we will create a night unlike all other nights.
Wishing you and yours a healthy and meaningful Pesach.
Rabbi Helen and Rabbi David
WLS Co-Senior Rabbis
