Passover Traditions and Resources for Families


Passover is the Jewish holiday that celebrates the Israelites exodus from slavery in Egypt. Each spring, families gather together on the first two nights of the eight day holiday and celebrate with a special ritual meal called a seder. This year, Passover begins at sundown on Saturday, March 27, and lasts until sundown on Sunday, April 4.

We recently sat down with Bay Area Mom Vivien Braly, Director, PJ Library Bay Area who answered our questions about the significance of Passover as well as traditions and resources that families can access. Whether your family typically celebrates Passover or you are wanting to learn more about this important Jewish holiday, you are sure to learn about it in the interview.

To help you celebrate at home, PJ Library’s Passover Hub is full of helpful holiday resources, games, checklists and printables for families. PJ Library also offers a beautifully illustrated Haggadah, the guidebook to the seder — which you can download for free in five different languages. And if a socially distanced Passover seder is required for you and your family, they have a handful of ideas for a Zoom seder.
