When Erev Pesach (14 Nisan) occurs on Shabbat, there are numerous Halachot that differ from other years. This overview is meant as a guide to those Halachot. For specific questions, consult your Rav. Chag Kasher V’Sameach!
Note: While kitniyot products may be eaten on Shabbat, Erev Pesach, it is our custom (at least for adults) not to do so.
One’s house should be kashered for Pesach by Friday, eating kosher l’Pesach meals throughout Shabbat. If Challa is eaten Friday night or Shabbat morning, it should be kept in a separate area on throw-away dishes or napkins which are disposed of after eating. If one is eating Challa at a separate table, one should recite Kiddush there as well, and have in mind to continue the meal at the main table. Birkat Hamazon may be said at the main table.
In place of Challah, one may eat Matza Ashira for the Motzi. Matza Ashira may also be used for Seuda Shlisheit, provided this Matza is eaten by 12:30 pm on Shabbat (others permit it to be eaten until 3:45 pm). It may NOT be used to fulfill the Mitzva of Matza at the Seder, and preferably should be eaten on Pesach only for those who cannot digest regular matza.
8) Kashering for Pesach may be done all day Friday until candle lighting (6:36 pm in Ra’anana). No kashering may be done on Shabbat.
9) By 11:30 am on Shabbat morning, the final Bitul declaration should be made, wherever one happens to be.
SEDER PREPARATIONS BEFORE SHABBAT
Because one may not prepare for YomTov during Shabbat, and in order to start the Seder without delay, there are a number of items which should be prepared before Shabbat.
1) The Z’roah (shankbone) and egg for the Seder plate should be roasted before Shabbat.
2) The Charoset should be ground before Shabbat. If one forgot, it may be prepared on Motzei Shabbat with a shinui (deviation, such as using the left-hand).
3) When using Chazeret (horseradish root) for Maror (note: bottled horseradish is not suitable for the Mitzva of Maror) one may wait until after Shabbat to grind the root, in order to maintain its potency. One may also grind the root before Shabbat and then keep it covered and refrigerated until the Seder.
When using Romaine lettuce for Maror, it is preferable, through not required, to examine the lettuce for any bugs before Shabbat. If one does prepare the lettuce Friday, the leaves should not be soaked in water over Shabbat.
4) Salt water may be prepared either before or after Shabbat.
5) The Seder table may not be set during Shabbat. After dark, one can say “Baruch hamavdil bein kodesh l’kodesh” & begin cooking & preparing for YomTov (& light YomTov candles).
6) It is customary to read the Haggada on Shabbat from “Avadim Hayinu” to “L’Chaper.”
7) It is customary for children (and a good idea for adults, too!) to sleep on Erev Pesach so as to be awake for all the Seder.
8) The Havdala paragraph (“V’Todiyanu“) is added to the Kiddush at the Seder.
9) The Afikoman should be eaten by 12:40 am on Motzei Shabbat.
