Here we usually go to the second night seder with the temple. That had to be cancelled this year. Instead there was a shortened Haggadah with the seder on one of the internet video platforms, Zoom or some other. We opted out of participating in that one, it just wouldn't be the same anyway.
The seder is meant to be shared with a family and friends, which it couldn't be this year.
I'm also sad for those who look forward to attending Easter Sunday services. Yes, they can be watched on line, in some places on TV. It's the fellowship of sharing the experience that's important. Again that was not possible this year.
We have to hope that next year will bring a return to normalcy.
