While we may not be able to gather together in Champaign, there are still many ways to further our education. Check out what Hillel recommends for virtual seders, shabbat services, 

virtual classes and seminars, and advocacy and donation opportunities.  

Pesach — Passover in Hebrew.

Seder —  Literally “order.” The seder is the ritual meal on the first night, and repeated on the second night in many homes, where the narratives of the Exodus from Egypt are told.

Haggadah — The text read at the seder.

Matzah —  Unleavened bread that resembles a cracker. It's one of the key symbolic foods of Passover.

Chametz — Leavened food that is avoided on Passover.

Passover Greetings

“Chag kasher v’sameach” — “A happy and kosher holiday” (Hebrew)

“Ah zissen Pesach” — “A sweet Passover” (Yiddish)
