Pesah in a Box & Passover Shopping Options



We are pleased to offer Pesah-in-a-Box, prepared by Sova Catering* (under the kashrut certification of Rabbi Aaron D. Mehlman). They will offer a seder plate** with provisions for two haggadahs (seders), as well as three different menus for you to choose from. Options are available for individuals and small groups.
Each meal costs $50 per person, plus $30 for the fully-stocked seder plate. 
Boxes will be delivered to Congregation Shearith Israel (Central Park West at 70th St.) for pick-up.
Sova is NOT able to offer any substitutions or modificatons to their Pesah-in-a-Box offering. Pesah-in-a-Box is a complex program designed for this very unusual year. Please DO NOT call Sova to make special requests.
If you are not permitted to leave your home, please indicate on your order form and we will do our best to arrange for a volunteer to deliver your box to you. (Note that our volunteers can only deliver orders within Manhattan.)

For technical assistance with the order form, please contact Sarah Gross at (212) 873-0300 x230 or by email.


If you would like to order a la carte food to supplement your Pesah-in-a-Box, you can call Sova directly (Riki: 646-623-0679 or Itai: 917-208-0810), let them know what you want from this menu, and instruct them to pack it with your Pesah-in-a-Box order.


Please do NOT call Sova to request any substitutions or modificatons or to your Pesah-in-a-Box. They will not be able to accomodate those requests.


 Sova Catering is an independent caterer and is not affiliated with Congregation Shearith Israel (CSI). While CSI is delighted to facilitate this program as a convenience for the community, please understand that by placing an order for “Pesah-in-a-Box” meals you enter into a contract directly with Sova Catering.
