Passover services will be held at Brigham Young University again this year, a commemoration that has occurred annually for almost 40 years.
Jeffrey Chadwick, a BYU Religious Education faculty member and Jewish studies scholar, will host this year’s service. In a salute to the traditional Old Testament ceremony that celebrates Israel’s deliverance from Egypt, the event will incorporate unleavened bread, bitter herbs and other festival foods.
Tickets for the service at the Wilkinson Student Center March 8, 22 and April 12 will go on sale Feb. 4 at the Joseph Smith Building, Room 271. Admission will be $25 for the public and $17 for BYU students, faculty and staff.
More information can be found by calling a BYU Passover tip line at 801-422-8325 or Patty Smith at 801-422-3611.
