We are all living through a major historical event and this is a record of our experiences and actions, a Haggadah of our time.
Haggadah loosely translates to TELLING. Tell us your story. What changes have you made in your everyday lives and how it will impact your plans for the year? How are you staying connected with friends and family during social distancing? How has your education or business been impacted? How is this year different than any other year?
The bonds which connect us as a society are changing, but our Jewish values provide a framework for us to persevere.
