The annual Passover Seder services at Brigham Young University will be held March 26 and April 2, 9, 10 and 15 from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. in 3228 Wilkinson Student Center.

The Passover, a Jewish celebration commemorating the deliverance of Israel from Egypt, has been celebrated for centuries.

Victor L. Ludlow, professor of ancient scripture at BYU and specialist in Jewish studies, will conduct the services. The unleavened bread, bitter herbs and other traditions of Passover will be included in the service, along with a special catered meal and commentary by Ludlow.

In addition to the services, a Passover Seder service workshop is being offered by Ludlow on Saturday, March 20, at 10 a.m. in 3228 WSC.

The workshop will provide ideas and suggestions for individuals interested in learning more about or conducting Passover Seder services on their own. Tickets for the workshop are on sale now in 271 Joseph Smith Building for $10 and will include a luncheon.
