Aiming to make Passover more accessible to the young adults, JewishBoston, an online hub for the area’s Jewish community, is offering its first do-it-yourself Seder kit. Free to Boston-area residents, ages 18 to 40, who sign up by April 8, “Seder in a Box’’ includes just about everything but the food and the guests: a Seder plate, a basic Haggadah, a leader’s guide, recipes, a shopping list, instructions for setting the table, and a matza cover.
“The Wandering Is Over Haggadah’’ included in the kit, is written in simple, conversational English with a sprinkling of Hebrew which can be used to run a 30 minute seder. It is short, but easily added to or modified for those looking to add traditional or personal texts or ceremonies.
Boston.com also provides on their website:
- A listing of seders and other Passover programming in the Greater Boston area
- A listing of Passover recipes (and post your own!) - New recipes are being added all the time!
- A Passover guide with all events and related blog posts
