CLINTON- A Jewish holiday that usually brings together large groups of people, will be celebrated a little differently this year.
Passover starts on April 8th and lasts for seven days. During the holiday there's dinner, called seder, where family usually gathers to eat and for children to ask questions about the holiday and the jewish history.
Due to the spread of the coronavirus and the need to social distance, many people won't be able to celebrate with their families.
Local Rabbi Didy Waks, co-director for the Chabad of Clinton, and his wife are putting together seder boxes. "It's hard because there are still people who live alone and can't participate in any kind of seder, but what we've done is we've created a Passover seder box for local jews who sort of want to do this event but don't necessarily know how to put it all together so quickly," said the Rabbi.
In the box is the Haggadah, Matzah, bitter herbs, and other essentials.
