ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -- As Passover begins on Wednesday evening for members of the Jewish faith community, local leaders of the Chabad of Robbinsville and Southern Hamilton found ways to help their community still celebrate while staying at home to avoid the spread of the coronavirus.
"As soon as we realized things would be very different this year for Passover and the traditional Seder dinner, we kicked into high gear to find ways to still celebrate," said Rabbi Yakkov Chaiton of the local Chabad.
The rabbi and his wife, Chana, were able to create "Seder-To-Go" kids that included homemade Matza, wine and other traditional foods for Passover seder. Through generation donations, they also were able to create catering for those who cannot be with loved ones for Passover so that they could still have a taste of the traditional meal. Several meals also were dropped off to the homes of area seniors citizens who were at-home.
"We wanted people to celebrate in a personal and special way," added Chaiton.
