NEW YORK (AP) — There's a Passover crisis brewing in an unlikely location: Katmandu, Nepal.
A communal Seder held there each year for 1,000 people is in jeopardy because shipments of Passover supplies are stuck in port in India.
The supplies for the Jewish holiday are normally routed via Nepal's Israeli embassy.
But the Israeli Foreign Ministry is on strike, which affects the embassy. The Seder is one of hundreds hosted around the world by the Jewish outreach organization Chabad-Lubavitch (huh-BAHD luh-BAH-vitch).
Chabad spokesman Rabbi Zalman Shmotkin in New York says organizers are exploring options for the Nepal Seder ranging from baking matzo (MOTT-zah) onsite to flying supplies in with individual travelers in small batches.
Most of those who attend the Katmandu Seder are Israeli backpackers traveling through the region.
