Wednesday evening is the first night of Passover — one of my favorite Jewish holidays. (And, not surprisingly, not the first time I’ve written about it.)

Why? Traditionally, it is one of the few times the entire extended family gets together and celebrates with great homemade food.

Think matzo ball soup, gefilte fish, hard-boiled eggs, latkes (yes, my family eats them for Passover too) and, of course, my mother’s meatballs (made with my late-grandmother’s recipe, of course).

But this year will be different. No family seder. At least not in person. Instead, we are using the 2020 technology instead – a video conference.

Call it the Year of the Zoom Seder.

Will it work? Well it won’t be the same, but it’ll be different. And that’s just fine by me.  At least we’re together.

And what about the food? Well, as it turns out, my mother lives nearby and we did a distanced tradeoff.  I received a fresh batch of matzo ball soup and meatballs in exchange for a lesson on Zoom.

Call it a win-win, in another busy week for employers.  Here are a few more new developments to know about before the Passover and Easter holidays take over the rest of the week.
