Rabbi Laura Baum will lead a supersize Passover Seder on Saturday.
As hundreds of worshipers follow along, she and a fellow rabbi will recite blessings over four cups of wine, eat matzo or unleavened bread, and dip parsley into salt water to tell the story of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt and liberation from slavery.
Tradition? Well, not exactly. Rabbi Baum’s Seder will be conducted in cyberspace, as her guests — from New York to New Zealand — join in at OurJewishCommunity.org, the online congregation she co-leads.
