NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – An ages-old tradition has gone high-tech.

Virtualseder.com hopes to get people around the Passover table through social media. It allows users to host a Passover dinner for $36 a table.

WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond: The Matzo Ball Soup Is Most Popular

“When they get their name over the table, they can then invite all of their freinds to come and put something on their virtual seder table,” says Robert Socolof of the Virtual Passover Seder Table Project.

Each item costs $18 and Socolof says proceeds benefit the Schneider Children’s Medical Center of Israel, located outside of Tel Aviv.

“It’s a lot like the hospital it supports. It’s colorful, it’s fun, and it’s interactive,” Socolof said.

The hospital treats children regardless of race, religion, nationality or ability to pay .

The seder has all the traditional choices, but Socolof says the matzo ball soup seems to be the most popular choice so far.

And the best part: there are no dishes to wash!
