Celebrities Tweet for Passover

From reality stars to A-list celebrities, Hollywood players have taken to their Twitter accounts to spread sweet Passover wishes, and make the occasional joke. We’ve rounded up our favorites. Here are the highlights:

Whitney Port: “Missing my fam on passover!!! I’m going to make haroset in honor of them”

Conan O’Brien: “Jewish fun fact: If you celebrate Passover on top of an overpass, you go back in time.”

Demi Moore: “Happy Pesach!”

Ashton Kutcher: “Happy Passover.”

Elizabeth Banks: “Happy Passover. Great seder last night. Outfoxed by scrappy little kid though in hunt for Afikomen. Can’t win ‘em all.”

Samantha Ronson: “Happy Passover to all you Jews out there. To everyone else, thank your lucky stars you don’t have to give up bread.”

Nicole Richie: “Only in LA am I the minority because I don’t have Passover dinner tonight.”

Jenna Elfman: “Have a lovely Passover, to all who are celebrating this evening!”

Rain Wilson: “Some old Hasidim start to look a lot like they’re huge ZZ Top fans (my wife’s joke & she’s ½ Jew).”

Joan Rivers: “I spend Passover with gay friends. Two of the four questions were on Liza Minnelli.”

I hope you appreciated this article. Before you go, I’d like to ask you to please support the Forward’s award-winning journalism this Passover.

In this age of misinformation, our work is needed like never before. We report on the news that matters most to American Jews, driven by truth, not ideology.

At a time when newsrooms are closing or cutting back, the Forward has removed its paywall. That means for the first time in our 126-year history, Forward journalism is free to everyone, everywhere. With an ongoing war, rising antisemitism, and a flood of disinformation that may affect the upcoming election, we believe that free and open access to Jewish journalism is imperative.

Readers like you make it all possible. Right now, we’re in the middle of our Passover Pledge Drive and we need 500 people to step up and make a gift to sustain our trustworthy, independent journalism.

Make a gift of any size and become a Forward member today. You’ll support our mission to tell the American Jewish story fully and fairly.
