Community Seder | 6:00 p.m. | Hillel

Illini Interactive Seder | 6:30 p.m. | Hillel

Looking for a seder with a creative and interactive twist? The Illini Interactive Seder is anything but bland. Engaging? You bet. Grape juice and wine? It’s tradition! Gefilte fish? We have our hands tied on that one. We will bring the Passover story to life through an English reading of a progressive Haggadah with plenty of interactive activities and lively discussion. The seder will include Hebrew prayers and will be conducted in English with English commentary. Transliteration and translation will be provided. Singing will be encouraged. Led by Heather Paul.

Traditional Seder | 8:00 p.m. | Hillel

Seeking out a traditional seder which may look similar to what you saw growing up? The student-led Traditional Seder will take you through the entire Haggadah from start to finish and will check all of the boxes. Gather around with your closest friends and community members to sing, tell stories, eat, and then eat some more. This seder will most likely use the Artscroll Haggadah.

WEEKDAY SEDAR - Thursday, April 21st

Darth Seder | 6:00 p.m. | Hillel

Do you think you’re a “Bad Jew?” Do you feel disconnected from Judaism, the Jewish community, from your family’s Judaism, or all of the above? We will use the seder space to explore our relationship with Judaism through discussion, reading the Passover story through the eyes of the “Wicked” Child.
