Passover Resources

A Resource Guide to Support a Meaningful Passover Experience

 Passover is our annual tradition of retelling the story of the Israelites being freed from Egyptian slavery in the Book of Exodus. We do this at Seders surrounded by community, whether that is family, friends, or strangers that become family.  It is an opportunity to look to the past and ahead to the future, reflecting on the rich tradition we are a part of. 

Passover begins at sundown on Wednesday, April 5 and concludes at sundown on Thursday, April 13 (Nissan 15-22).

This guide is organized by topic and includes a curated list of resources with brief descriptions and links for you to select which you would like to explore further! 

It is by no means an exhaustive list of Passover resources, and we hope this will support your exploration of making the holiday meaningful by incorporating something that will enhance your experience.

Getting ready for the holiday takes time, preparation and involves a number of different processes to prepare your home for Passover.  These resources help to explain why we do these things to welcome in the holiday, and serve as a tutorial if needed! 

Here are some great recipes that provide a nice twist on traditional Passover Seder menus.  We all can agree the food is at the top of our lists when it comes to Passover! (*note: some recipes include kitniyot*)

Are you looking for something to do with children, your family, students, or friends? Check out some of these ideas we found to add some fun to your Passover! 

The Haggadah is the text that guides our Passover Seders.  While we are all familiar with the Maxwell House Haggadah, there are an infinite number of alternatives you can choose from to guide your Seder. Here are some we found, as well as some great Passover themed resources, that we think you’ll enjoy. 

While there are not many Passover themed movies, music and TV shows, the ones we have are all certified classics! 

    • A Rugrats Passover tells the story of our favorite babies, and Angelic, living out their own Exodus fantasy.  Available to stream on Paramount Plus.
    • The Prince of Egypt, featuring an all-star voice cast and memorable song-after-song, is an animated retelling of the Exodus story.  Available to stream on Peacock.
    • The Ten Commandments is the original Passover epic film, the GOAT.  Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner and Anne Baxter star in this timeless (1956) adaptation of the Exodus story.  If you’re like me, this is an essential part of your Passover experience. Available to rent on Amazon Prime (and usually on TV throughout the holiday).
    • Saturday Night Seder was a celebrity filled Seder experience from the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.  It’s a great example of the power of community as we were all seeking for some much needed joy.  Check it out on YouTube
    • Looking for some Passover music to get you through the holiday? Check out these tunes that you can listen to for way longer than 8 days!
