Temple Shalom Virtual Community Seder

6 – 7 pm, Friday, April 10, 2020

Log on at 5:45 pm and say Hi

  1. SHARING OUR HAGGADAH: We have created a special Virtual Haggadah which is below. You can download and print it out, or view it on a second device.
  2. ON YOUR TABLE: We will have (and display) a complete Seder Plate. We encourage you to have on your table:
    1. The three Passover symbols:
      1. Pesach – traditionally, a lamb shank (or even a chicken leg), or vegetarian options like a roasted beet or a Paschal yam!
      2. Matzah
      3. Maror
    2. Wine or grape juice, for the blessings on the four cups
    3. Charoset (optional)
  3. ROTATING READINGS AND SONGS: Instead of chair to chair, we will go from home to home! We have assigned different readings and songs to different homes beforehand, and will send them a “Seder order” by email.
  4. Our Virtual Seder will use ZOOM, which hosts online video-audio meetings.
  5. If you are interested in participating in any of our ZOOM events, please contact us at templeprez11@gmail.com
  6. If you have ZOOM already, simply click on the link above. Type in the PASSWORD, and you are in!
  7. If you don’t have ZOOM yet, ZOOM will actually do all the work for you if it is not already on your computer, tablet or phone. [cont’d on p.

    1. Go onto your device a few minutes early.
    2. Click on the invitation link provided
    3. ZOOM will identify your device and will ask for permission to install Zoom. Say YES (it is FREE) and do what it asks. It may direct you to your APP store or send you a file to run, depending on what kind of device you have.
    4. When completed, hit the Zoom invite link again.
  8. Entering our SEDER ZOOM ROOM, you will see:
    • Join with Audio pop-up: YES
    • Join with Video: pop-up YES (but optional). Or ‘START VIDEO’ by clicking on your own picture once you are inside or find the Video Camera icon.

                       ====>  You will show up in the ROOM!

  1. Most important buttons: ONE PERSON TALKS AT A TIME ON ZOOM, SO….
  • ‘Microphone’ icon: Mute/unmute yourself at bottom left of screen. Or click on your picture and it will show up. The Host can also control this so don’t be surprised if everyone is muted all or part of the time.
  • ‘Chat bubble’ icon: Opens a message screen to the right. You can type a comment or a question.
  • Raising Your Hand: If you are not the speaker and you wish to ask a question or make a point during the seder, it is good protocol to use the ‘Raise Hand’ Icon inside the ‘Participants’ icon.
  • Renaming yourself: Click or hover on your photo, and look at the menu there.
