BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - Illinois Wesleyan University will host its annual Passover seder
dinner celebration Tuesday, April 11 at 5:30 p.m. in the Main Lounge of Memorial Center
(104 University St., Bloomington). The event is free and

Passover Seder is a Jewish ritual that takes place on the first evening of Passover
for practitioners in Israel and on the first and second evenings of Passover for practitioners
outside Israel. The Seder is a remembrance of the Hebrew slaves' exodus from Egypt
that is part of the holiday meal and includes symbolic foods, prayers and songs to
commemorate the exodus tradition.
