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.

Campus Community Invited to Passover Seder today at 5:30 p.m. 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 faiths.

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 (magda.robles@saintleo.edu) by April 9 if you plan to attend.
