Campus Community Invited to Passover Seder today at 5:30 p.m.
March 17, 2008
University Ministry and the Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies once again invite the Saint Leo University community to this year’s Passover Seder, scheduled for 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 16 in the Glen E. Greenfelder/Janet L. Denlinger Boardroom of the Student Community Center complex.
In Judaism, the Passover
Seder celebrates and retells the story of the Israelites’ exodus
from slavery in Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. It is custom to
invite guests to the annual Passover feast. At Saint Leo
University, we cherish the custom of Seder hospitality and embrace
the opportunity to encourage dialogue among people of all
During the Seder, participants will hear about the historic significance of the foods used, such as bitter herbs and matzoh.
A full dinner meal will be served during the celebration.
Admission to students and university faculty and staff is free, but seating is limited and so reservations are required. E-mail Magda Robles at University Ministry (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 9 if you plan to attend.
