Passover this year begins on the evening of Monday, April 22, and ends on the evening of Tuesday, April 30 (or on Monday evening April 29 in the Reform tradition). 

Join the Wesleyan Jewish Community for 2 Passover seders, programming, and a Passover co-op (if there is interest)! RSVP will be available soon. We are also looking for poetry, art, or other work to put in a Passover zine for the seder. This work can be uploaded on the google form or sent to ahochfelder@wesleyan.edu.
