Pesach Seder
First Night: Saturday, March 27
Second Night: Sunday, March 28
“Seder” means order. The Seder is a service made up of ordered parts. The Seder is structured around the sharing of four cups of wine. Each cup conveys a theme of the Seder: Sanctification, History, Thanksgiving, and Hope. At the center of the Seder service — its very purpose — is the story of the Exodus.

Download the Rabbinical Assembly Pesach Guide
This Guide, approved by the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards, explains in detail the laws and customs regarding the dietary restrictions of Pesach, the rules that remind us each time we eat of Pesach’s messages for us. This guide is intended to help families maintain a kosher for Pesach home in accordance with the principles of Conservative Judaism and its understanding of Jewish Law.

Do you wish to sell your hametz?
Please complete this form no later than Thursday, March 25, 2021.

If possible, all hametz – food not acceptable during Pesach, or materials containing such unacceptable food – should be destroyed or given away before the holiday begins. Should this be impossible, the hametz may be stored in such a way that we are sure not to use it during the holiday and its actual ownership is transferred to a non-Jew until the holiday ends. The individual participating in the sale appoints his Rabbi as an agent to sell his chametz to a non-Jew.
