Why is this year different from every other year? As we respect social distancing requirements together, our Passover Seders might look different than past years. In light of this, JCC Greater Boston has created ways to honor a more intimate Passover with array and activities. Show us how you are celebrating by posting photos with the hashtag #Passover2020.
