Host your own Seder

We are excited to support you in hosting your own seder with friends on either the first or second night of Passover!

There are two options for food for your seders. You can pick up food from Slifka during the day on Wednesday, April 5, or you can prepare your own food and be reimbursed for groceries/food orders. For both of these options, you can pick up a seder plate with all of the ritual items, as well as haggadot (books for the seder) from Slifka on Friday.

To select either of these options, you must use the RSVP form above. You will be asked for the names and SIDs of those attending your seder, since this is how we are able to provide reimbursement or meals.

Who can attend seders?

Slifka Seders are open to all Yale students, staff, faculty, affiliates, and guests. To RSVP to attend as a guest, please fill out the RSVP form and write to We will follow up with you about payment once you register.

Is there a cost for seders?

Students do not need to pay for seders! Students on meal plan should swipe to use a meal credit (if this poses a problem for you, please write to For students not on meal plan, the cost of the meal is covered by a generous donor. All Yale affiliates who are not students (staff, faculty, etc.) and their families are asked to pay $36 per person, and other guests are asked to pay $54. While this helps us defray the costs for catering seders, if these amounts present a financial hardship please reach out to

All other Passover meals

Throughout Passover, Kosher for Passover meals will be available at Slifka (80 Wall St.) for lunch and dinner. Those on meal plan can swipe, and the cost for those off meal plan is $15.50 for lunch and $19.99 for dinner. Again, if this presents a hardship please write to
