Passover is coming!

Join us at this year's Passover Seder at Hillel

Evening of Wed, Apr 5, 2023

Kenyon Hillel Passover 2023: We will be offering a variety of options during the week of Passover, which begins the evening of March 27.  Please see below and email hillel@kenyon.edu with any questions.

Peirce Dining Hall will offer at least one dish for each meal that week that will be Passover-friendly — meaning it will not contain any leavening, and milk and meat will be kept separate for that particular dish. There will also be matzah available and a variety of Passover desserts. Please note that any meat served in Peirce is NOT kosher.

During the week, Kenyon Hillel will be making Passover food as well. Matzah ball soup will be back (we are making a lot more this time so that we do not run out as quickly), matzah toffee, charoset and other favorite dishes. If you have a favorite you would like to see, please let us know. Look for emails during the week with specific dates and times.

If you would like to create your own Seder, we can help with that. We have Seder plates, you can borrow a Haggadah, we can provide you with recipes and much more.  Just let us know how we can make your Passover as meaningful as possible.

There are also Seders online, and we are happy to provide you with links to other Hillel's and themed Seders via Hillel@Home.
