Celebrate Passover with Sim Shalom’s online synagogue on April 23, the second night of the holiday. The global dinner party, which commemorates the exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in ancient Egypt, focuses on today’s community and Jewish responsibility, including retelling the story and protecting natural resources.

There will be festive freedom songs, including Dayeinu, and readings from the Haggadah. The symbolic seder plate offerings, which will be passed virtually around the world, will substitute the sacrificial lamb with roasted beets.

Rabbi/Cantor Steven Blane, Sim Shalom’s founder, will lead the festivities with congregants participating live via the chat feature. Formerly of Jersey City and Bergen County, he is a Rogosin Yeshiva High School graduate. For information, go to www.simshalom.com or call (201) 338-0165.
