As spring knocks its slightly lighter boots against our doorsteps, Jewish Chabad centers the world over set up for the holiday of Passover; Among the locations offering a traditional Chabd-hosted Seder are the , Jamaica, Mexico and ; All Chabad Seders are free of charge.

If spring break or other travel takes you away from home during Passover, the Jewish outreach organization Chabad-Lubavitch hosts communal Seders in cities, on college campuses and in vacation destinations around the world.

Passover begins at sundown April 10. Chabad is hosting Seders the first two nights of the eight-day holiday.

A legendary Seder takes place each year in Kathmandu, Nepal, drawing more than 1,500 Israelis and other travelers each year. Other Seders are planned in Nepal in Pokhara, near the famous Annapurna trail and in Manang, which at an altitude of 11,545 feet may be the world’s highest Seder. Supplies for the Manang event are transported by helicopter, motorcycle or horseback, depending on the conditions.

Chabad also holds Seders in popular spring break destinations like the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Orlando, Florida, and Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Iceland has become a big destination for travelers and rabbinical students will be holding what they’re calling the world’s northernmost Seder there both for Iceland’s small Jewish community and visiting tourists.

Other events are planned in cities on six continents. The events are free and open to the public though the hosts ask that you let them know ahead of time if you plan to attend so they can arrange the right amount of food.
