Jewish Life at Duke strives to make Passover at Duke a special time by providing multiple options for Seders. Students are more than welcome to attend a traditional, communal seder at the Freeman Center for Jewish Life, or they may elect to attend one of the many student hosted Seders held across campus. Students are kindly asked to register for all Passover celebrations.

Student hosted Seders are first night only and a full list can be found on the registration form. Advance registration is required for all Seders. Jewish Life at Duke is also happy to provide Seder plates, and haggadot for students who would like to host their own seder. Please email Jewish Life for more information.
Student-hosted Seders are supported through the generosity of the Freeman Family Program Fund.
