With Passover starting Wednesday, many Jewish families are grappling with how and whether to celebrate the holiday in the time of COVID-19.

Seders typically involve large gatherings of family and friends, singing, reading from the Haggada (a song and prayer book), eating of symbolically important foods and games for kids. How will this all translate on Zoom, especially with family members who might be technologically challenged?
