Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Time: Thursday, March 28, 2013 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Location: OSU Hillel Wexner Jewish Center

Admission: Free

OSU Hillel and the Multicultural Center invite people of all faiths and backgrounds to take part in the "Rainbow Seder" on March 28 from 7-8:30 pm.

Passover is one of the most widely celebrated Jewish holidays and commemorates the biblical story of Exodus, when Hebrew slaves were released from bondage in Egypt. Called "pesach" (pay-sak) in Hebrew, Passover is a celebration of freedom.

As is tradition at a Passover Seder, the story of the exodus will be read aloud and partake of many foods, including matzoh, which symbolizes the unleavened bread the Israelites took with them during their rushed departure from Egypt. The youngest person at the table will also ask four questions that serve to teach about Jewish traditions. Those questions focus on what makes the Passover night different from other nights. The LGBTQA Haggadah will still asks the same traditional four questions, but also include a fifth that is specific to the LGBTQA community: "On all other Seder nights we do a traditional Seder. Why, on this night, do we have pride?"

The Rainbow Seder will be held on Thursday, March 28th from 7:00pm-8:30pm at OSU Hillel. Hillel is at 46 E. 16th Avenue (Just South of the campus Starbucks). For more information, contact Felicia Lilien at
