"Passover meets Corona"

Added on April 7, 2020

So when the house is clean and turned over for Pesah, "B'dikat Hametz" has been completed, the Chicken Soup is cooking and the Turkey is in the oven, what does one do next?

Well, this is what my kids and I have done for you. We hope you stay safe and well and have an enjoyable Pesah.

Cantor's Corner

Hi everyone,

As we get more into the unknown, it is the known that can keep us going. The known is the upcoming holiday of Pesah. Perhaps our plans may have changed slightly, but we will celebrate this holiday as families, with love, memories, learning, and song.

Below I have added more links for the songs we can sing at the Pesah Seder. Every couple of days I will add new music links.

Please click on any of the links and enjoy the music.

Also, if there is something you might want a melody for, maybe I know it or I can try to find it for you. Please email me with any questions at

Enjoy and stay safe and well.

~Cantor Larry
