Leading your own seder is a lot simpler than it seems. Why? Because you have your cheat sheet right in front of you. A standard Haggadah has all the instructions and guidance necessary to walk through the 15 steps of the Seder like a pro. So just pull out your haggadah and read through it in advance.
Want to have some witty and wise thoughts to share with your (truncated) crowd of participants? Visit Chabad.org for Passover ideas.
Here is what you’ll need for the Seder:
- Haggadah booklets
- Matzah (handmade shmurah matzah is ideal)
- Wine or grape juice
- Marror (bitter herbs, typically romaine lettuce and grated horseradish)
- Vegetable for dipping
- Saltwater (yep, just salt and water)
- Food for your Passover feast (make sure its kosher for Passover and does not contain roast meat)
- Roasted bone (Chabad custom is a chicken neck, which may be easier to procure than a lamb shank)
- Cutlery (either disposable or kosher for Passover)
