Passover Resources

Hello friends,

Again this year, for the second year, we will celebrate during the on-going Pandemic. I recommend you conduct Seder ritual for the close family and within your bubble, or use safety measures to gather with others. If you are holding virtual Seder gatherings I suggest you keep them simple, engaging and short. Don’t knock yourself out to replicate the elaborate meal and ritual you usually do. Click here: Say-der to link to a great resource. It is a fun way to have a short seder encapsulated in 4 parts. It can be in place of Haggadah or with one.

If you share a physical space with others and can do without the interruptions of screens for your seder, enjoy the old fashion gather around the table ritual. Even if it a smaller gathering. Make time to be with others, especially if you are alone, on screens or phone and keep it manageable. Huddle around the screen and virtually gather with.a few people at a time for a more intimate experience. You can have multiple gatherings in the virtual environment we are in. Be social, stay safe and have lots of fun!

Pointers: Too large of a group on screens can be challenging to manage for a long Seder. For best results make your virtual seder short and with smaller groups. It’s hard to sing together on Zoom because of sound delays. Have all mute when on the call together and the leader can coordinate who unmutes to read, sing or talk.

Wishing you a happy, liberating and meaningful Passover, 

Hug sameach, Rabbi Sigal

Basic Matzah Recipe

1 cup flour and 1/3 cup water

Move an oven rack near the top of oven and preheat oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C). Preheat a heavy baking sheet in the oven.

Dust a clean work surface and a rolling pin with 1 teaspoon flour, or as needed. Place 1 cup of flour into a mixing bowl; set a timer for about 16 minutes (18 minutes maximum). Start the timer; pour the water, about a few tablespoons at a time, into the flour then quicker. Stir the water and flour together with a fork until the dough forms a rough ball, remove the dough to the prepared work surface, knead rapidly and firmly until smooth, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Divide the dough into four equal pieces; cut each piece in half again to get 8 pieces total. Swiftly roll each piece into a ball. Roll each piece of dough out into a 5-inch pancake, dusting the top and rolling pin with flour as needed. Gradually roll the pancakes out to a size of about 8 inches, increasing the size of each by about 1 inch, then letting the dough rest for a few seconds before rolling again to the finished size. Roll from the center out. The bread rounds should be very thin. Using a fork, quickly pierce each bread about 25 times, all over, to prevent rising. The holes should go completely through the bread. Flip the bread over, and pierce each piece another 25 times with the fork.

With at least 8 minutes left on the timer, remove the hot baking sheet from the preheated oven, and place the rounds onto the baking sheet. Place the baking sheet onto the rack near the top of the oven, and bake for 2 minutes; turn the breads over and bake an additional 2 minutes, until the matzot are lightly browned and crisp. Remove. Cool.
