The Jewish holiday of Passover (in Hebrew, Pesach) commemorates the exodus of the Jews from slavery in Egypt. Yep, it’s a biggie! In fact, Passover is one of the most important holidays in the Jewish faith.
This year, Passover begins the evening of Wednesday, April 5, and ends the evening of Thursday, April 13. To celebrate, there is traditionally a seder on the first and second nights, but like many things in Judaism, that’s flexible.
And here at Honeymoon Israel, we’re all about flexibility and helping you “do Jewish” in your own way.
That’s why we’ve put together some Passover goodies for you! Whether you’re doing a traditional seder or want to mix things up, we’re here to help.

We’ve put together a few of our favorites that reflect your uniqueness. Whether you’d like to host a #Friendseder, or are attending your first seder, these (downloadable!) options will provide the guidance you need.
Seder Table Cheat Sheet
We’ve put together a Seder Cheat Sheet designed to help you feel confident attending or hosting. The word Seder in Hebrew means “order.” A Seder is a structured, home-based ritual that combines education, food, singing, and storytelling, all in a particular order. Designed to engage all ages, Seders are held on the first and often second night of Passover. Around the world, Seders include different items and rituals that reflect the diversity of Jewish cultures.
