Students are attracted to many KU Hillel events for good food and to feel part of a community. For students who can’t go home for Passover, KU Hillel’s Seder is especially important. “It’s such a significant holiday for so many people,” explains Melissa Kingston, KU Hillel’s Program Director. “Everyone has their tradition, and it’s often an important time for family.”
Beyond providing a place for students to go on the first night of Passover, KU Hillel will be open for all Jewish students for the duration of Passover. In an effort to make the holiday as stress-free as possible, KU Hillel will be stocking up on matzah and Kosher-for-Passover snacks. Students are invited to pick up a box of matzah at the downtown location at 7th and New Hampshire to prepare for the holiday week.
