WILL WE BE HAVING OUR SEDER? SONG PARODY BY BARBARA SARSHIK

Will We Be Having Our Seder?
To the tune of “Will you still love me tomorrow” by Carole King and Jerry Goffin

I’m feeling grumpy and grouchy
So tell me please, Dr. Fauci,
Can my friends come for matzah and maror?
Will we be having our Seder?

Is there a Pesach exemption
So we can mark our redemption?
And must Elijah stay outside my door?
Will we be having our Seder?

Bridge
I should be shopping for brisket.
I should clean up my dining room.
But I’m not sure I should risk it.
Would a night with my crowd spell doom?

I know we have to be wary
In times so scrambled and scary.
So tell me now what April has in store.
Will we be having our Seder?

VIRTUAL PASSOVER

EDITOR’S NOTE: These days everything has gone virtual so that we may practice social distancing and flatten the curve of the COVID19 Coronavirus pandemic that has (temporarily, we hope) changed the way we interact with each other. You can probably pick your favorite place on the globe and they will have a virtual service streaming for the benefit of their local congregation. We have had to find creative ways to stay connected and keep our faith and traditions alive and well during this time of uncertainty. But we have survived many other times of trial, and working together to strengthen the ties that bind us together, we will survive this one stronger than ever.

Here is a suggestion from an email to Don and Helen Cherry from their daughter Karen.

… there are a number of virtual passover celebrations you can join on your computer. this is one from the Palo Alto JCC you can join. it is 4-5:15 on April 8th. Or maybe your local congregation wants to find one to do together. It seems a lot of the JCC’s and synagogues are offering these…

A MESSAGE FROM NATALIE FISHER GUERIN

EDITOR’S NOTE: From an email sent to Jerry Weissman today from Natalie Fisher Guerin.

Jason just moved back to Shelby. He was between jobs in Boston and certainly no one is hiring now. I really pushed for him to get out of Boston. I fear that when folks who live paycheck to paycheck have no money, no food and people they love start dying, there will be riots in the streets. Of course he could have come to me but he has a much better chance of getting a job when this is all over in Montana. So Don rented a big vehicle, drove to Boston, packed him up and they just got back yesterday. I am so relieved.

David and family are fine in Virginia – actually Debbie had the virus but has recovered. She stayed at home, was sick 3-4 days but then the fever and cough stopped and she got her energy level back. By the time they were notified that her test was positive, she had already recovered.

Please feel free to update our friends in Great Falls that Jason is back in Shelby. Once the virus is over, he’ll figure out what’s next – if he wants to stay in Montana or where he’ll go – obviously where he can get a job. For now, he’s safe and that’s what I care about, of course.

Give my love to your family and all our extended family in Great Falls,

Natalie
