Passover 2017!

What is Hillel doing for Passover?

Can't make it home for Passover? When your mom asks you what you're doing for the holiday, what are you going to tell her? Here's one good answer:

"I'm going to Hillel's Passover Seders!" The first seder will be led by members of the hillel's executive board, and we'll be serving brisket, matzah ball soup, a vegetarian option, and delicious sides, all home-cooked from scratch by dedicated Hillel volunteers! Everyone is welcome!

If you like the first seder, you'll be in luck, because we're doing it all over again the next night! This time we'll be serving roast chicken, matzah ball soup, a vegetarian option, and more delicious sides. And of course, for dessert we'll have jelly fruit slices and macaroons.

Both of the seders are free, yes FREE, and we would never turn anyone away, but we would like you to register so we can get a headcount.
