The Passover, a Jewish celebration commemorating the deliverance of Israel from Egypt, has been celebrated for millenia.
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 12, 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 go on sale Feb. 15 in 271 Joseph Smith Building for $10 and will include a luncheon.
