The BYU Passover Seder service includes the biblical unleavened bread and bitter herbs, and features other festival foods and traditions of Passover, all in a specially catered meal. The Seder is hosted and led by Dr. Jeffrey Chadwick, BYU Religious Education (Jewish Studies) and Jerusalem Center professor.

It will be an evening of cultural learning with scripture connections. It promises to be an enriching experience, centered on an appreciation of the ancient Israelite and modern Jewish celebration that commemorates the deliverance of Israel from Egypt. This is a 40-year tradition at BYU.

Tickets for the BYU Passover Seder Service will go on sale on Monday, February 8, 2021. Ticket prices will be announced in January 2021.
