Passover 2020/Pesach 5780

This year we will be doing a lot of things for the first time. Our people are good at this. We’ve had to adjust ourselves to new situations many times in our history. Even when our Shuls cannot be a physical gathering place for us, they can still function profoundly as centers of tradition and kindness as we find ways to adjust to our new circumstances. We will emerge from this stronger and better, and it will happen sooner if we all follow safety protocols. Right now, safety is our most important focus.
 
See the full letters from Rabbi Davies for detailed instructions and guidelines.

Guests
 
> No one here in Charleston should host any guests from out of town for Passover or other family celebrations. Everyone must plan to celebrate Passover in their current locations.
 
> Guests who are scheduled to come to Charleston must be told immediately that they may not enter our community.
 
> Family members who arrived here from out of town already must be quarantined for 14 days.
 
> You should not leave for any other community for Passover, family celebrations or any other reason.
 
> One should not invite guests locally for Shabbat and Holiday meals, including the Seder. One should not accept invitations for such hospitality either.

Preparations
 
> The OU has a brief but thorough description of how to prepare a kitchen for Pesach, which you can read here. Also, see the video series put together by Rabbi Yaakov Trump of the Young Israel of Lawrence Cedarhurst.
 
> Families should not clean for Passover until a few days before the holiday, and then clean enough so that there is no chametz in front of us that we may inadvertently eat. The nullification of chametz that we make on Erev Pesach will qualify for all of the deep cleaning we usually do.
 
> Those who have ordered Shmurah Matzah through the Shul/Chabad will be hearing about pick-up/delivery options shortly.
 
> If you were not able to order through Dining In and are still in need of food for Passover Seder, please contact the Rabbi ASAP to arrange something for you.
