Do It Tonight: Hillel Seder

tumblr_m1vyceVOFZ1rrxluvo1_500

For all you Jews and non-Jews seeking an enriching cultural experience, join Hillel and your fellow Chosen People for a traditional Passover Seder at Parish House tonight at 5:30. There will be traditional Passover food and traditional Passover wine (Who doesn’t love Manischewitz?) and traditional Passover prayers. Basically, the Jews were slaves in Egypt and then Moses was like, “Lord, help me out here,” and then there was a burning bush, I think, and also 10 plagues, but the Pharaoh was all about the cheap labor and wouldn’t let the Jews go, but then Moses split the Red Sea and the Jews escaped, but they didn’t have time to bake their bread, and that’s why you eat Matzah because it is unleavened. To learn more, go tonight! There is an $8 cost that you can pay at the door, and you probably should have already emailed Marc Bragin at braginm@kenyon.edu if you intend to attend.

What: Passover Seder

And it kind of depends on how many of those “no” votes were due to non-drunkenness at a Seder vs. how many were due to not attending a Seder, because it’s possible that we actually had 100% drunkenness among those attending. Lent results after the jump.
