Join us for a community Seder to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Passover on Sunday, April 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 in the Claudia Belk Dining Room.
The Passover Seder is a special meal filled with stories and songs which remembers and celebrates how the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. Over the centuries, the themes of liberation and hope that are part of the Passover story have resonated with many different communities and continue to be deeply relevant in our time.
If you'd like to attend the Seder, please rsvp to email@example.com by April 8.
The Department of World Languages and the Center for Latino Studies present "Ixcanul" (translates roughly to "volcano" in the Mayan dialect of Kaqchikel). The plot underlines the conflict between a mother who wants to marry her daughter to a man she does not like. The young woman would prefer to run away with a boy she likes, and both of them would like to immigrate to the United States eventually. The film evidences the young woman's confrontation with the modern world-a plot point that is based on the real-life, ongoing exploitation of indigenous people in Guatemala. View Event
