GW Hillel, Washington, DC will offer FREE lunches to students observing Passover in April 2019.
For the first time, the organization will prepare FREE lunch in its townhouse on 21st and F streets April 19 to 27, 2019 for students celebrating Passover, an eight-day-long Jewish holiday.
Students said the initiative will assuage student concerns about the cost and availability of kosher meals, making the holiday more accessible for students.
“People are very busy, people are struggling with their GWorld or just in general, and food brings people together. That’s a big idea in Judaism, so we try to create community.”
– Dan Epstein, a rabbi and the senior Jewish educator for Hillel
