Host a Passover seder in the comfort of your home with a community that you choose!
Hillel is here to help!
How Does the Process Work
1. Decide to Host: sign up HERE! The deadline to sign up is Tuesday, April 9th.
2. Join us for a seder workshop where you can learn more about Passover rituals, gain tools for running your own seder, and meet other hosts. The workshop dates are on Wednesday, April 10th from 8:00-9:00 PM and Friday, April 12th from 1:00-2:00 PM at Hillel.
3. On the day before Passover, Friday April 19th, pick up your seder plate from Hillel complete with samplings of the ritual items and a box of matzah. We will let you know the available pickup times at a later point.
4. Enjoy your seder!
5. Tell us how it went! Share highlights from your hosting experience by filling out the reimbursement form HERE. In that form, you will upload all receipts for your meal and an attendance list. Hillel will reimburse you up to $15 per guest for up to 15 guests (including yourself), and can only reimburse you if you save your receipts. Note: Hillel does not reimburse for any alcohol. Also, if you are purchasing personal items not for your meal, please put them on a separate receipt.
