A year ago, Zoom was new, and in-person seders verboten. Now, with vaccinations picking up along with deep pandemic fatigue, American Jews are grappling with whether and how to gather. And after months of racial reckoning, the holiday’s historic themes of justice and freedom are newly relevant, and complicated. Join Marcella White Campbell, Executive Director of Be’chol Lashon; Elie Kaunfer, President and CEO of the Hadar Institute; Al Rosenberg, Chief Strategy Officer at OneTable; and Rabbi Dr. Jay Michaelson, who writes a yearly guide to new Haggadot for the Forward, for a lively discussion of how this holiday will inevitably be different from all Passovers before.
