Where To Go To Celebrate
One of the more difficult moments of having our college kids away at school is missing them on the holidays. With Easter and Passover falling during the same period (Passover starts on Friday, April 19th at sundown, Good Friday is April 19th and Easter is on Sunday, April 21st). Some students will head home for the weekend but many are not able to leave (and exams are only a few weeks away). We have put together information so your student does not miss out on celebrating the holidays including restaurants that are having Easter brunch.
Chabad at USF – Will be holding a seder on Friday, April 19th and Saturday, April 20th. Suggested donation of $18. Need to reserve a seat.
USF Hillel will have a Passover Seder on Friday, April 19th. Registration is required by Friday, April 12th and costs $18 for UM students with a valid CaneCard ($54 for non-students). Students with financial need – please contact Igor Khokhlov, UM Hillel Director firstname.lastname@example.org. No student will be turned away for financial reasons.
