This past Tuesday, April 14th, a group of Umbra students, professors, and staff came together to celebrate the Jewish Passover holiday. We made a special exception to the no-food-in-the-library rule, and everyone brought a dish to share for the potluck-style meal. Even here in Perugia, Professors Judy and Michael Chiariello were able to find several foods for the traditional Seder plate, pictured here.
Participants each read or sang a part of the traditional Seder service, both in English and Hebrew, and shared the four questions asking why the Passover night is different from all other nights. Thanks to all who joined us for this special meal!
