Pesah 2020 Roll of Remembrance

While we likely will not be gathering together for Passover services, we will still be creating a Pesah Roll of Remembrance to be distributed via PDF.

If you have already mailed in the form that was in the Passover mailing, please let us know by sending an email to or by calling the office at 215.635.6611. We are only picking up mail at the Post Office periodically, and then waiting a couple of days before handling to make sure envelopes are virus-free.

If you haven't yet mailed in your form, you can submit the names of dearly departed loved ones and pay online, if you'd like to. The link to the form is here. You'll have the option to pay by credit card or e-Check, or to bill to your account.

Donations and Notification Cards
We want to let you know that all donations are being processed but until the AJ building is opened again, we will be delayed in sending out cards. We appreciate your continuing donations.

Some virtual Passover preparation activities:

Shmutz & Chumetz (Pesah Q & A with Rav Shai)
Rav Shai will lead two "Shmutz and Chumetz" sessions to help folks understand what the halakhic requirements are for cleaning, for food, and for the seder. Each session will begin with the same presentation and then open up for questions. The sessions will be this Sunday, March 29, at 4:00 PM and this coming Thursday (in lieu of his "Introduction to Judaism" class), April 2, at 7:45 PM. Zoom information: By computer: By phone: Please dial 929.436.2866 or 301.715.8592. Meeting ID#: 969452689

Passover Resources
Passover is just around the corner and I know everyone is adjusting their plans. We thought perhaps these resources could help you prepare and even carry out your seders. As always, feel free to be in contact with Hazzan Glantz with any special requests. These videos and others will be added to the Audio Resources page of this site.
