Chabad on Campus offers Passover seders for college students

Chabad on Campus is hoping to make Passover more enjoyable for students and young adults in St. Louis by hosting communal seders this year on the first and second nights of Passover — Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23.

The seders will be held at Washington University and at the Levites Chabad House (7018 Forsyth Blvd., near Big Bend Blvd.). One of the seders is expected to attract about 250 guests.

Another seder for graduate students and young adults in their 20s and 30s will hosted by the JGrads division of Chabad. This seder will be led by Naomi and Tani Cohn (MBA ’16). JGrads receives funding from the Jewish Federation of St. Louis.

Instead of a formal cost for students participants are invited to make a donation of their choice, from zero dollars and up, to support Chabad on Campus. There is a fee for faculty members and parents.

Space is limited and reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information and reservations, call 314-721-2884, or visit


Included in the seders will be a catered dinner and handmade round Shmurah Matzah.

Chabad also offers a plethora of resources to empower students who plan to lead their own seders.

For students who are studying abroad, Chabad is able to help connect them with a seder. Chabad’s online seder directory contains information and schedules for thousands on local seders in nearly 100 countries.
