For travelers who find themselves out of town for Passover or students who can’t make it home for the weekend or even first-time seder-goers, finding a warm and welcoming place to participate in the Passover seders can seem a daunting task.

To make sure everyone has a place to go and a way to share in the beauty and the mitzvahs, Chabad-Lubavitch has compiled an interactive list of nearly 2,400 community seders and other holiday-related events in 670 cities around the world. The International Seder Directory, which is sponsored by George and Pamela Rohr, allows you to search by city, state or country—and by ZIP code if you are in the United States.

With the holiday only about a week away, seder organizers worldwide urge participants to register soon so that enough matzah, wine and food can be ordered and prepared for all participants.

More than just a holiday meal, the Passover seder—the name comes from the Hebrew word for “order”—is made up 15 different parts and includes the retelling of the Exodus story. Especially poignant for children are “The Four Questions,” which question why this night is different from all other nights.

Passover begins this year at sundown on Friday, April 22, the night of the first seder, which takes on special significance as it coincides with Shabbat. For a comprehensive guide to information and insights about the holiday, visit the Chabad.org special Passover mini-site here.

The second seder takes place after dark on Saturday, April 23. (For the exact candle-lighting times in your area, visit the candle-lighting calendar here.

While some of the communal seders in the directory have a fee or suggested donation associated with it, no one will be turned away if costs are prohibitive for individuals. As it says in the Haggadah: “Whoever is hungry, let him come and eat; whoever is in need, let him come and conduct the seder of Passover.”

So if you find yourself anywhere from Ghana to Greensboro or Auckland to Athens, there’s a seat at the Passover table waiting for you.
