Etiquette for Guests
Found In: Preparing for Passover
If you are invited to be a guest at a seder, inquire about what you can bring. Some hosts would appreciate a dish for the meal, some might want guests to teach a song or lead a portion of the haggadah, and others make no requests. If you are given no instructions, it is probably wise to stay away from cooked dishes – many people keep kosher for Passover and will not allow food cooked in someone else’s home to be brought in. Things you can bring are kosher-for-Passover wine or chocolate, flowers, or fruit. Some hosts might appreciate a new book for Passover ( a new haggadah, for instance) or an object they can use on the seder table – a Miriam’s or Elijah’s cup, a matzah cover, etc.
