We know Passover 2020 will truly be different from all other Passover Celebrations prior and following.
We at MakomNY strive to make it as celebratory, meaningful, educational and communal as is possible, while still maintaining physical distancing from one another.
We are offering the following Passover related programs. Please let us know if you will be able to join us for any or all of them.
Making Matzah Live! - Sunday, April 5 at 4:00pm Now that you are home, perhaps you have a little more time to do some cooking you would not normally do. Making matzvah is fun and easy. And you simply need some flour, water, olive oil and a little salt (and a rolling pin comes in handy). This video will be on YouTube if you can't make it live.
Making Charoset Live! - Monday, April 6 at 12:00pm There are so many kinds of charoset to be made. We will share with you a few basic version of charoset, and some extra recipes in case you want to be adventurous. This video will be on YouTube if you can't make it live.
MakomNY First Night Virtual Seder - Wednesday, April 8 at 5:30pm Rabbi Deborah and David Bravo will host a virtual seder from their home to yours. They will share in their seder from approximately 5:30-6:30, and then break for dinner, and then return for music and the conclusion of the seder, 8:00-8:30pm.
