Register for Passover Seder here

We offer a variety of themed student-led Seders on both nights that offer something to every student. Seders will be celebrated at the Student Life Center and Hillel. Doors will open at 7:00 pm. Using our registration think, students will be able to choose from several themes and groups for their Seder experience. This year’s Seder options include FYSH & Friends, Seniors, Graduate Students, Passover Memes for Jewish Tweens, and a variety of fraternity and sorority specific ones as well. Thanks to the generosity of the Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, we have received grants that allow us to offer a FREE Passover Seder to Seniors, Graduate Students, and students with meal swipes. For students without meal swipes, Seders are offered at the heavily subsidized cost of only $10.
