We regret that as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our annual Passover Seder has been canceled. The health and safety of our community is of utmost importance. But just because we're following the guidelines of the CDC and SF City officials doesn't mean we can't celebrate Passover as a SF Hillel community. Here's some things we pulled together so you can engage with the holiday, even while sheltering-in-place.

Count the Omer
The "Omer" refers to the 49-day period between Passover and Shavuot. To learn more about The Omer, read My Jewish Learning's "How To Count The Omer".
"While Passover celebrates the initial liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt, Shavuot marks the culmination of the process of liberation, when the Jews became an autonomous community with their own laws and standards. Counting up to Shavuot reminds us of this process of moving from a slave mentality to a more liberated one."
