Tickets go on sale Feb. 14 for annual BYU Passover Seder Services

Scheduled for March 25, 26 and 31 and April 8, 9, 15 and 22

The annual Passover Seder Services at Brigham Young University, conducted by Victor L. Ludlow, have been scheduled for March 25, 26 and 31 and April 8, 9, 15 and 22 in 3228 Wilkinson Student Center from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Tickets go on sale Feb. 14 and are available at 271 Joseph Smith Building. Ticket prices are $25 for the public and $17 for current BYU students, faculty and staff.

For nearly 40 years, Professor Victor L. Ludlow, a specialist in Jewish studies, has been conducting annual Passover celebrations at BYU. The Passover Seder Service will include unleavened bread, bitter herbs and other traditions of Passover, along with a special catered meal and commentary by Ludlow.

“This experience enriches one's appreciation of the ancient Old Testament and the modern Jewish celebration commemorating the deliverance of Israel from Egypt,” said Ludlow. “Jesus celebrated Passover annually in Jerusalem; indeed, the Last Supper was a Passover Seder meal.”

In addition, a Passover Seder Service Workshop will be held Saturday, Feb. 26, at 10 a.m. in 3228 Wilkinson Student Center. The workshop will provide ideas and suggestions for individuals interested in learning more about the Passover Seder services or conducting Seder services on their own. Tickets for the workshop will be $15, will include a luncheon and will also go on sale Feb. 14 at 271 JSB.

For more information, call the Passover tipline at (801) 422-8325 or Patty Smith at (801) 422-3611.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

May 12, 2022
A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
