Notes

  • In late March, 2020, Jews began speaking and writing about conducting their seder via Zoom and other videoconferencing technology, due to the stay-at-home restrictions during the Coronavirus pandemic. Within a week, some of these conversations were using the term "Zeder," likely coined simultaneously by multiple Jews.
