Let’s Make Passover 2020 The Most Meaningful Ever With Cindy’s Corners

Homemade Has New Meaning This Passover

This year’s questions:

Why is this Passover different than all other?

Is it so bad celebrating Passover at home with just the immediate family?

Will we celebrate next year in Jerusalem?

How can we order Kosher for Passover foods and wines?

The last will be answered here, as so many kosher businesses have made delivery possible almost everywhere in a short time.

This year, Passover is different around the world for all of us. Coronavirus has made us look at Exodus from slavery and Egypt quite differently.

Yes, our communities around the world are effected. But, we can celebrate. We still have options of either chicken or meat, what types of wines and matzah brands we choose and lots of prepared foods or fresh fruits and vegetables to enjoy.

When people complain about canceling vacation programs or big catered family gatherings, remind them about the Jews of Europe 80 years ago and how lucky they are now.

Look at how technology has helped us communicate now. Everyday, rabbis are giving lessons, Jewish entertainers are live for free, and families living in different countries are still Skyping and using Zoom.

We are “The Chosen People” and we will get through Passover and coronoavirus successfully.

I highly suggest you contact your local rabbis regarding cleaning, preparations, local kosher establishments and communicating about before, during and after Passover laws. Some rabbis are adjusting just for this year some of the usual regulations.
