Not sure if I'm going to have a Pesach. Considering all that's happening with coronavirus. Pretty sure I'm stuck in a household quarantined with people who do not care. Stuck in a town where I cannot get about. No matzah. No nothing. No Pesach for me.

No pesach here either. I don’t even care. Wen it comes it comes. If we’ll all be well to know it’s here. Right now we’re all sick

Which town are you in. What are you missing.

All of you, tell us your towns we can make it happen! You can PM me addresses and I can try to organize shipments.

Is there a local Jewish Federation? They have been super helpful around here at least.

Refuah shleimah!

The situation is complicated. Too many variables.

Why do people always think "chabad" is the answer, they are fallible humans like the rest of us.

Because they often try the help. Especially if someone teaches out to them. Tell us where you are located. Do you want help? Or just venting?

What part of the world are you in? Maybe we can suggest stores that can deliver or organizations that can help.

All else fails, keep it really simple, do it in your room, and maybe at least treat yourself to a new haggadah and tablecloth so you at least feel like it's Yom Tov (you can order those online).

Amazon in past years has had some Pesach stuff, I assume it will again this year.

You can try Oorah also if that works better for you than Chabad.

But also, women here want to help! Please let us know if we can send you things depending where you are - I can send a box of machine matzah if you are in the US, for example.

My son is a shliach and they are able to do some things such as arrange a bris with nobody but the baby, his parents, the mohel, and the sandek, all in masks and gloves of course, or send needed siddurim for people stuck at home and who can't come to daven in Chabad.
I saw that Zabar's in New York is sending out Passover packages but find out who gives kosher supervision. My brother in law in KY loves some of Zabar's food and there is no kosher deli in Louisville so they ship on dry ice.
Again, you have to find out what is kosher that they sell. There may be other places who will ship.

Tell us where you are and I can see if there is either an online supermarket or chabad who can send you some matza and wine.

Its just me and DH, both sick. Kids are OK, so staying elsewhere. I'm not even allowed to do laundry or take out trash, and way too sick to clean the refrigerator, much less anything else. I'll talk to our rabbi, but even if people send food (and we haven't been able to eat in days), its not going to be Passover.

Passover is in two weeks! We can make it happen! My Rav said that in the old days, people used to clean for Passover the night before! Don't give up!!

Tell us what you need. Tell us or PM where you live.

Good news is if you are sick now you will iyh feel better by passover! And you won't be contagious anymore so you'll still be able to get help! Don't despair!!
It takes a few hours to make a house kosher l'pessach (without spring cleaning).
You're allowed to cook on yom tov.
Refua sheleima!! Hug

That's very kind. Food, we have. And our friends have offered to make all our meals if needed. But the cleaning and covering, given how weak I am, I cannot imagine happening.

Say hi 👋 to him for me.

It's easier to figure out who my son is. My BIL is not frum.

My Rav told me:

1) No need to cover anything. Pour boiling water over it all. Done. And if you do chumras, this is the year to give them up. If you have tile counters, you can stick some foil on them.

2) Put the oven burners on high, put the oven on self-clean. Done.

3) You don't need cabinets. There's a perfectly good floor! That's what I decided!

4) Food is the hardest part! The cleaning - worse comes to absolute worse, say that thing where you sell all the chometz you didn't find and done.
