Mazel tov! You’re the host of this Passover like no other. Thank you for taking on a
sacred task. Here’s what you need to make this ritual night enjoyable, participatory,
meaningful and memorable.
1. Get ingredients ready. Check list and edit/add as needed.
2. Communicate the Zoom links, ingredients list, and any welcome note or
directions to all participants.
3. Make sure computers/tablets/phones are charged or plugged in.

(Tip: It’s hard to sing together on Zoom because of lag, so either pick a soloist
or embrace the cacophony!)
