Why is the year different from all other years?
In all other years, we invite family and community into our homes to tell the Passover story, share the Seder meal, and hide the afikomen. This year many of us will hold our Seders virtually as we do our part and follow social distancing guidelines. While we cannot congregate physically, many of us are choosing to virtually open up our homes to observe Passover with those from the wider community. FindASeder aims to facilitate this by allowing those who are hosting a virtual Seder to connect with those who would like to attend one.
How does FindASeder work?
Sharing your virtual Seder
If you are hosting a virtual Seder, we welcome you to share it on the Host a Seder page. You’ll fill out a simple form that requests information about your Seder so that Seder seekers can make an informed decision and attend a seder they believe will be the most enjoyable, interesting, religious, cultural – whatever it is they’re looking for in their Seder experience.
Every Seder submission is manually approved, so once you complete the form, your Seder may take a few hours to appear on the site. If you’d like your submission removed for any reason, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you’d like your Seder removed from the site. We will act quickly.
Attending a virtual Seder
If you’re looking to attend a virtual Seder, check out the available Seders on the Find a Seder page. You can filter the available Seders to hopefully find one that will be exactly what you’re seeking. Once you’ve found a Seder that works for you, just fill out the form at the bottom of the page. This will send a message directly to the Seder host, who should reach out to you and provide any necessary information you’ll need. Keep in mind, FindASeder just facilitates the connection between Seder seekers and Seder hosts, we do not host the Seder. This means your host is responsible to provide a link (Zoom, Hangouts, Skype, etc.) for you to join the Seder.
