Holiday Host At Home

Holiday Host At Home FAQs

Hosting at home for the High Holidays or Passover? Here’s how it works:

  • Go to and click on “Create an Experience”. Once on the “Create an Experience” page, you’ll answer some initial planning questions.
  • On the Experience Details page, you’ll start filling in the rest of the information about your meal.
  • Submit for approval! You will receive an email confirmation when your meal is posted.
  • Once your meal is approved, invite your guests! You can do so from your “manage experiences” tab, or directly from your event page. You will be notified by email when guests RSVP.
  • You will be reimbursed $15 a person for up to 10 people.
  • You will use our reimbursement form after your meal. You can find this form in your event approval email. Save your receipts! We do not reimburse for alcohol.
  • You can download your attendance list directly from the platform, make any necessary updates, and upload it directly into the reimbursement form.

High Holiday Host at Home

  • You can host meals in your home during the High Holidays on either Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur but not both.

Passover Host at Home

Hillel will provide you with seder plates, haggadot, and matzah if needed!

Attend a Seder-Hosting Workshop at Hillel. Go through a seder hosting FAQ, hear from other hosts about ways to make your seder special, and start planning with help from the Hillel Haggadot.

  • Seder Workshops are mandatory for all hostsDates for 2023 to be announced. 
  • If you register your seder after Date TBD, we cannot guarantee seder plates.
