We know that many of you are daunted by the prospect of suddenly having to host a Seder, some for the very first time. To help ease your way into it, we’re launching a daily Zoom tutorial that we’re calling Seder Academy.

Please join us daily at 4 p.m. EDT here:

If you’re on a mobile device, you’ll need to download the free Zoom videoconference app here first. If you’re on desktop or PC, you should be able to access the link without downloading anything. And don’t worry, you’ll be able to see us, but we won’t be able to see you. So no need to change out of your pajamas. We’ll also be posting each day’s videos and notes on this page.
