Don’t have a Haggadah handy? Check out some great on-line Haggadot, suggested by some of our favorite local Rabbis and Friends: DIY HaggadahThe Rabbinical Assembly’s old school version, Rabbi Sarah’s Google Drive Collection of Haggadahs; and this Haggadah that our Zweig/Pellicone crew uses at our family seder.

It’s all about the wine, obvi. Our favorite Wine Guru, Brett from Grape Intentions, suggests perfect pairings for your holiday table: He recommends a Cantina Gabriele Pinot Grigio which is a clean and refreshing white wine from Northern Italy, with a sharp nose and hints of tropical fruit and white flowers (Veneto, Italy, $15) and a Mountains of Jerusalem Merlot, that features a rich red wine ripe with concentrated flavors of juicy plums and black cherries.


Speaking of wine, how about using Champagne or sparkling wine for the first glass? Our friend Rabbi Hannah from Temple Sinai loves this as a celebratory way to start the seder! Check out a few of our favorite bubbles here


Celebrate Spring on your menu! Find a farmers market near you and incorporate seasonal greens on your holiday table. We’re excited about asparagus, ramps, spring potatoes and All.The.Herbs!


A brisket is a key centerpiece to many a Passover meal. Our friends at Sloppy Mama’s smoke one of the best in town. Prefer to make your own?  Visit Harvey’s Market, our favorite butcher in DC.


What’s a Passover Seder without raising voices together? Ben Pagliaro is a talented musician and has a rockin’ version of Chad Gadya. Check out his YouTube Page here and follow Benny P Music on Youtube for more tunes.
