Passover in Times of Corona

Call for Collection Items: We are looking for videos, photographs, and objects for our collection

Passover 5780 (2020) was the first Jewish holiday that had to be celebrated under the conditions of coronavirus.

To document these unusual circumstances for the future, the Jewish Museum Berlin put out a call for photographs, videos, and other materials from Passover during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We would like to ask once again for you to contribute objects of any kind to our expanding Covid collection.

  • How have you experienced the past year?
  • How did you confront the challenges of these times in your household or your community?
  • How did you approach holidays?
  • And what made your second Covid-era seder different from the last one?

We would like to thank everyone who responded so far and we continue to welcome further submissions.

Please email your contribution to We are also happy to answer any questions at that email address.
