From reality stars to A-list celebrities, Hollywood players have taken to their Twitter accounts to spread sweet Passover wishes, and make the occasional joke. We’ve rounded up our favorites. Here are the highlights:

Whitney Port: “Missing my fam on passover!!! I’m going to make haroset in honor of them”

Conan O’Brien: “Jewish fun fact: If you celebrate Passover on top of an overpass, you go back in time.”

Demi Moore: “Happy Pesach!”

Ashton Kutcher: “Happy Passover.”

Elizabeth Banks: “Happy Passover. Great seder last night. Outfoxed by scrappy little kid though in hunt for Afikomen. Can’t win ‘em all.”

Samantha Ronson: “Happy Passover to all you Jews out there. To everyone else, thank your lucky stars you don’t have to give up bread.”

Nicole Richie: “Only in LA am I the minority because I don’t have Passover dinner tonight.”

Jenna Elfman: “Have a lovely Passover, to all who are celebrating this evening!”

Rain Wilson: “Some old Hasidim start to look a lot like they’re huge ZZ Top fans (my wife’s joke & she’s ½ Jew).”

Joan Rivers: “I spend Passover with gay friends. Two of the four questions were on Liza Minnelli.”
