Event guide: Easter and Passover services online

Many Treasure Valley churches and synagogues are going digital for worshipers staying at home as part of COVID-19 prevention efforts.

BOISE, Idaho — This Wednesday night, the celebration of Passover begins for members of the Jewish faith. This is also Holy Week for Christians.

For most, because of stay-at-home orders related to the COVID-19 outbreak, the celebrations will look a lot different than those in the past and, likely, the future.

Many clergy are using technology to unite their congregations in worship, no matter how distant they are asked to be in this time of pandemic.

Churches and synagogues with services and classes taking place online this week are listed below.

Many of the churches also regularly offer services online, or will do so as long as the stay-at-home order is in effect.

Disclaimer: KTVB realizes that, at this time, this guide likely does not include every worship service offered online. This remains a work in progress, and we will update as we gather new information. See something missing? Email us at ktvbnews@ktvb.com.
